I might be about the same age as Peter Wasser - I am 67 and, like him, from Australia. My first computer was my university's IBM 7040 in 1969 which I programmed in assembly language. I have been programming ever since, although now semi-retired. These days I make apps for Android phones using Java. And while I agree on GPS and fibre optics as being significant I think I have to agree with others here that computers, especially as personal devices, and the internet are the innovations with the greatest impact. However a close contender is the mobile phone and another is the commercial use of jet aircraft.
