Getting on the Grid
I’m a fan of Walt Mossberg’s WSJ Technology column. Here he is talking about the future of technology and interaction at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
Especially interesting is the first 10 minutes of this presentation. He predicts how some of the vernacular associated with the internet and communications will soon fall by the wayside. For example we don’t think of “accessing” electricity, we just do it. In the future, (if you don’t already,) you won’t consciously THINK about “getting online,” as it will be completely integrated into daily life and uses beyond computers and mobiles.
Soon the terms and words we use today will sound just as dated as references from the 50s.
