I love my iPad. And like all friend John Doer, I do think it is the next big thing. But I am very conflicted. I feel that those of us that are creating technology are maybe the band member on the RMS Titanic. I try to be objective as much as I can about the world and think that we are all in for a very difficult time (especially our children).
- We have an economy built on the assumption of cheap energy . That is the first iceberg. Energy prices may go up ten times or more in the next ten twenty years and we are wasting valuable time.
- There will probably be major climate shifts that will cause massive destabilization of countries through out the world
- Countries like Iran will go nuclear and some nut will actually use a bomb cause not only the deaths of tens of thousands of people but the potential collapses of the worlds economy
- If that does not get us, biological terrorism may
Sorry about this. I just had to say something. Now I can go back to enjoying my iPad. Let the band play on.
