A tsunami is an onslaught of waves generated in any large body of water by an earthquake, volcanic eruption, or some other cataclysmic disturbance. Drop a large enough object into the Atlantic Ocean and you would generate a tsunami (maybe we could toss Washington D.C. in just to test this out?).
Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are indeed disturbances, especially if one occurs while you’re trying to get some sleep. For that matter, anything that disrupts our day-to-day activities is a disturbance, and what better example of seismic societal awakening than that of technology?
The past decades have been an interesting ride. As a child, our home phone was a party line (lots of fun for snoopy children), alarm clocks had to be wound, and owning a 45 meant a record, not a gun.
Our television (it was normal to have only one) was black and white, had about five working channels, and you had to walk up to it and turn a knob to change the channel. I was amazed when transistor radios first came out, a radio you could hold in your hand.
