Im sorry bodebliss, but that website you posted is full of BS, theres no way we're gonna be doubling our technological progress every hour by 2010. You'd need A.Is and all sorts for that and thats not gonna happen soon. Best i predict by 2010, are 8mutil core cpus as standard, everyone running Vista, super slim phones with more features, high def TVs in most homes,good broadband... but nothing life-changing.
Then your a loner. Because the doubling effect is already noted, has occurred and is accelerating. There will be an 'event horizon' type event in that time frame like it or not.
I'm sure the people of 1890 thought,'this is the height of UP' but then came airplanes, automobiles, wireless, etc.
Technology is about to go ballistic and in a short time frame. It will affect all levels at once. From the compiling, to distribution, to reimplementation of data for reinvention and newer application in an ever faster turn-around till our heads are spinning from the ever faster whirl-wind of advance.
It would be counter-intuitive to think otherwise.
Absolute BS, sure technology is going to progress but my original point stands, we're not going to see such changes in 2010.I'll bet a permanant ban from this site if im wrong.
There is nothing better than switching off the technology, and taking my dog out for a walk. I can walk for miles in the countryside and not see a single a soul. I can find a spot where i can sit and just watch the wild life going about their daily business.
This to me, seems to bring home just what we have become, and how reliant we are on technology. Yes we need it, but there is always an escape route if you take the opportunity of seeking it. This seems to bring home the relevance of things to me in a way i cannot describe. Sounds daft i know, but hey, i am only human after all..........................
