Crazy times...

It's been ages since anything's been posted here, I've been extremely swamped with work and home to post.

Anyway, I came across this extremely interesting video on the pace of technology and civilization.

What do you all think it means?

  1. So glad to see you're back!

    Very interesting video. I guess in spite of all the economic and national turmoil, opportunities for success abound beyond our comprehension. And if we Americans don't get on board quick, we are going to drown in the international technology tidal wave.

  2. That's how I felt - given the rapid population explosion in nations like India & China - coupled with the fact that those nations have an incredibly driven education system that pressure students to succeed, while our system is focused instead on not offending anyone & making everyone feel good about themselves - things don't seem to bode well for the West.

  3. Like John said, the United States is getting away from encouraging people to work hard for success, and instead leans toward socialism where everyone has to get a prize so their feelings aren't hurt.
    Secondly, although there are times when I wish things weren't so technological, I must adapt to be able to move forward.
