Paradigm Shift

The future is now…

Have you ever heard that phrase? The future is now? I used to think growing up that it would be a long time before I would be in the future. But, Not Kidding, it really is now. Just think of it, 15 years ago there was no such thing as an I Phone. We were all enamored with portable CD players and huge clunky cell phones. Wow, has the world really evolved that much?

Every book ever written (just about) is now at your fingertips. Every newspaper too. No longer do you have to sit in a dank basement looking up files, or microfiche. Now, you can research your family online, you can solve any problem, and learn how to make, unmake or construct anything with just a few keystrokes.

I keep saying it’s amazing to myself, but that is not it. It’s like every other stepping stone in civilization, a step. Just a bit more dramatic than others. Although I’m sure those who were alive when the printing press was invented thought that was the cusp of mankind.
