Continuous Partial Retro-ness

Shawn Zehnder Lea likes to mark a lot of anniversaries, and here's one that she marked on May 20:

Today is Dippin' Dots 20th birthday....The first beads of cryogenically frozen ice cream were invented by Dippin' Dots Founder Curt Jones in 1988.

This particular item resonated with me, because David Allen had just written about Dippin' Dots on May 10.

The Onion reports that a time traveler from the 22nd century held a press conference in March to inform mankind that the "ice cream of the future" will supplant all other desserts.

In response to an earlier David Allen post on Dippin' Dots, I commented, in part:

Dippin' Dots illustrates the fallacy of trying to be futuristic. Today Dippin' Dots seems as dated as an old Star Trek episode.

But I was surprised to learn that the company was founded in 1988. It seems like they've been around forever.
