Embracing Change- we live in amazing times

This link below presents astonishing facts about the age that we currently live in.

We certainly live in an incredible world and are blessed to be experiencing this exponential growth in technology.

I cannot imagine what our children will be doing at midnight when they are 50 years old, probably just 'thinking and looking' and the mouse will move and pages will scroll across the screen and maybe the screen will be projected on feather light glasses that they wear when they want to experience some entertainment.

What will we do with all that computing power and all that information, it just boggles the mind.

As the video tells us, the amount of technical information is doubling every 2 years, that means that 50% of what we learn today will be outdated in 2 years, that is almost too difficult to comprehend.

This is the link to the video:

    What a wonderful article. It is so true that we live in a society that talking to someone has become obsolete. Our kids no longer meet out side of school, but they talk to each other via tex messages. It's hard to imagine where we are heading at this time. If we don't keep up we will be lost. Is our society becoming so technical that we have forgotten the gift of gab?
    There was a time, not too long ago that certain large firms were requesting that no emails/tex messages would be used in the office. If you wanted to speak to someone you actually had to seek that person out. That didn't last long because everyone just got too busy. Keep up the great articles. I see them quite often. They provide a lot of information and make one think.
