Technology doesn’t worry me at all. People do. Technology is in the hands of a flawed species. Some use it for good. Some don’t.
Yes, actively. Working in the tech sector for so long makes me cautious and I always ask, “why do you need my information". I’ve seen it abused and have had personal cause to become more cautious. We are expected to be compliant and hand over information about ourselves in return for beads and blankets (services, gifts, opportunities, peer acceptance, ego, etc).
What will be dead in the next five years? (Products, companies, trends, etc)
We live on the cusp of another major historical “age” and it’s exciting to be here. I absolutely want to be a part of it, to understand it, to create with it, and to make differences to people’s lives with it. How can I not wake up excited about that!
