Future of Technology
I wanted to start this topic to see what you all for see for the future of technology. As the world changes for the good, how will technology change to helps us?
Sorry if this upset anyone💜 I'm a curious person.
I'm curious as well, as I've read through the whole list a few months ago, that I'm getting the sense we're losing somethings, as well gaining at the same time. Like find a new source of energy that is more eco friendly, future occupations will be focusing on the arts and anything that requires human sensitbilities due to a good chunk of the others will be automated, etc.
There are some things we're losing too, I've saw a prediction on that list by someone that Facebook, Instagram and social media in general would be on a decline, if not gone.
I'm still trying to recover at the moment, so I can't look into things just yet. I hope someone will show us some light into these things.
Wow - interesting:
I just woke up from a dream. I had gone to a restaurant, by myself. (Rare because I rarely leave the house, even before Covid, and can't remember the last time I've gone to a restaurant by myself.)
Ordered a drink and went to take out my phone, only to discover I hadn't brought it! I was amazed -- when was the last time I left the house without my phone??? In fact, that was the hallmark of the dream: that I had gone somewhere and had forgotten to bring it.
I felt almost panicked: what if I had gotten into an accident? But then I remembered that the majority of my life was cell-less, and I had done just fine. Then the dream shifted into other things -- I went to the bathroom, where the sink began to flood with napkins (not sure what THAT was all about).
Eventually I woke up, having forgotten all about the dream. I got some coffee and popped on the forum -- where I found THIS thread waiting for me. Synchronicity!
@goldstone It's gonna be very interesting to see how technology evolves. I saw a few predictions about it helping the environment and us having different ways to communicate. It'll be amazing to watch everything play out in the world.
