A Time Like No Other
The Change Multiplier
Throughout history technology has brought change, often through the advent of war, and the need for competitive advantage that wars demand, where the results are of "life and death" importance. Significant changes; the combustion engine, and later, jet engine, electricity, and the associated means of producing it, all of these brought massive change, but when compared to what is happening today, the change they brought was massive, but moved at glacial pace.
This is the single-most important thing to realize about technology change now - it is constant, with a fast cycle rate that is increasing in pace.
