07 Feb Impatient for Change
When I see a new way of going about something that clearly makes sense, I want it now.
I want cars that can drive themselves now.
I want the entire idea of voicemail to be gone, now.
I want fax numbers to not exist, now.
I want e-mail attachments to never happen again.
I want to eliminate group texting and reply-all.
I want 3000 MPH air tubes for fast travel.
I want zip lines that go from the top of Camelback Mountain to various restaurants around the valley (okay, that might be a bit ridiculous.)
I want it all now because we have the technology to make these things a reality.
Really what I want is for the adoption of inevitable change to happen faster than it does. I want people who way things like, “yeah, but maybe we still need that old, outdated thing” to embrace the inevitable and stop thinking change is bad….NOW.
The moment I see a way to do away with confusion, I tend to want it to be adopted. Now.
I have a prediction or two, because I see this happening.
In the future, the very near future, we will no longer drive cars. They will drive us. It’s not a secret. Autonomous vehicles already exist. Get used to it.
In the future, I want the entire idea that your home needs to have an even or odd, compass-based named location to die.
Imagine how many square miles of of the Earth have a physical address. “1234 What Street,” you say?
Forget it. Street addresses will soon go the way of the Dodo.
It’s absolutely brilliant. Period.
