Vague, unimaginable, and thrilling. This is our future. With all the uncertainty and unpredictability that the world has to offer, TechCrunch has set out to define what it means to be human, through exploration of the relationship between man and machine.

It’s quite natural for people to talk about the beginning of a period in history with words like “emergence “ and “subversive.” Often times, however, it’s difficult to pinpoint at what particular time has one such phenomenon occurred. Is time and space—the past, present, and future—really linear? What does it mean to define the future?

Human beings have, for a long time, searched for ways to make sense of the world. TechCrunch aims to help people better understand the role that technology has played in shaping our past and our present, so that maybe we can predict how it will shape our future.
