Shift Happens: Will You Be Ready?

I came across this video at GTD Times. It’s yet another video that I starred in Google Reader and finally got around to watching. It really does get you thinking, although like many other similar projects, it starts to fork at the end into some strange conclusions, like a computer more powerful than the human brain will cost less than $1000 somewhere in the 2020’s. I have no doubt that computers will grow more powerful, and will even reach the point of being able to learn and to make decisions, but I’m not so sure technology will ever duplicate the human “soul.”

Still, for you Luddite IT people who still insist on deploying Windows 2000 and want to hang onto XP forever, this should be your wakeup call. Technology is here, and you can’t fight it and live in the past. It will steamroll you.
