Did you know?

Susannah just sent me the link to this video and I thought it was interesting and slightly scary enough to share. It was recently played at a Sony conference.

  1. It's not more scary then the time my grandma had when telephones, cars and later airplanes, washing machines, dishwashers, TV etc started to be used ! She was born in 1894 ! If you think what all had been invented ever since, it's normal that it continues.

  2. What does it all mean? I don't know. What I do know is that many young people suffer from Alzheimer or are getting demented, which is frightening.

  4. I've watched it before, it's absolutely scary, especially when you think this will never stop!

  5. Very interesting, Janice. The part about education is certainly scary enough, because I've been through it. In the printing and newspaper industries, which in the 1960s hadn't changed much in 100 years, changes happened so fast in the 70s and 80s that our equipment was out of date by the time we learned to use it. By the late 80s, the number of printers working in a newspaper composing room was reduced to 10% of what it was in the 70s, because of technological change.
    It's a whole new world out there, one I no longer feel equipped to deal with on any sort of meaningful level. Or can I? Can we, with our blogs, make some contribution? Let's hope we can, anyway.

  6. When my husband first started using a computer the machinery occupied a large room! Now we have extremely powerful very small hand-held computers. Progress is inevitable and necessary and imagination is limitless. Thank goodness, or we'd still be waiting for someone to discover fire :-)
