I wrote this a few days ago:
The rise in data flow follows the increased speed of internet connection. Demand follows opportunity.
Technical innovation is both a driver and a follower of consumer demand. The future will see a closer connection between mind and machine.
Increased connectedness will foster the fast evolution of exchange relationships. Boundaries will blur between consumer and consumed.
If any of this sounds overly mystical then consider the popular notion that ‘any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic’ – even for those who think themselves to be technologically adept.
The future’s coming – gird your loins oh ye unbelievers!
It seemed erudite and relevant. Just goes to show how much we change from day to day in terms of our interests and perceptions.
Much of what I write today will be tomorrow’s …
