‘Everybody sees it coming, but no one wants to talk about it’ πŸŽπŸš—πŸ“±

There inevitably comes a time when our ideas, no matter how prolific, become extinct and get replaced by new ones. Just look at the emergence of autonomous cars. Writes former product head of General Motors Bob Lutz:

“The auto industry is on an accelerating change curve. For hundreds of years, the horse was the prime mover of humans and for the past 120 years it has been the automobile.”


There will always be a niche of traditionalists that want hands-on control, just as people still prefer to read hard books, string a brilliant guitar riff, and think with their hands in writing analog.

But the volcano of ideas are all digital. As Lutz quips: “I think probably everybody sees it coming, but no one wants to talk about it.”

There is no cart, there is no horse, there is no wheel. As Steve Jobs once discovered in Scientific American: “The man riding a bicycle was twice as good as the condor.” Humans build tools to maximize efficiency.

While I agree with your opinion for a period of time, I do believe at some point humans will revert to what was once a simpler life. Thank you for your post.

Thanks Armann, agreed we can’t cope with this dizzying pace. The role of technology will be to make it simpler. πŸ˜‰
