I like to say that there is two things that defined success in the tech business. The first is being lucky. The second is not mistaking luck for being smart. Larry Page thinks he is smart.
My friend, Robert X. Cringley, wrote an excellent blog post on Net Neutrality which you can read here. I have a few thoughts I would like to share about this topic.

Traveling around the world as I do really exposes me to all the ways people message each other. I thought I would list some of those that I know, and actually have to use, since people have strong preferences – depending on age and residence.
Will we be living on the moon or in a cave? When I made my predictions for the computer industry for 2014, a number readers suggested that I make predictions for 2064. With some anxiety, I decided to sign up for that and started by stepping back into 1964 and asking myself what I would have …
I was just thinking about how Google could use Nest which it just acquired to understand more about our living habits.

I thought I would take a break in forecasting the future, and talk about a very real problem in the present, why Corporate Board of Directors suck. In particular, I am going to focus on the Boards of large public companies.
I just posted my top ten predictions for the computer industry for 2014. One reader suggested I give my predictions for 2064 after reading a link I posted on Isaac Asimov’s predictions for 2014 which were made in 1964. You can read what he had to say here. Asimov was very much on the mark but then, as a science fiction writer, it was his job to think about the future.
In thinking about the next fifty years, I found myself thinking back to 1964 when I was just 19 years old. I wondered what I would I have predicted back then about technology in the years 2014.
