Some snips from an interesting article …
A decade ago many folks who like to worry about the advance of technology were worried about the “Digital Divide.”
Perhaps this has turned out to be a case of the haves and have-laters. The haves (that’s us) are going to overpay for crummy early technology that barely works, in order to make it cheaper and better, the ‘have-laters’ will then get it all, dirt cheap, pretty soon.
The Digital Divide is a term you don’t hear much anymore. The digital have-laters now have. It is no longer ‘trend setting’ to be connected.
SO .. a prediction …. In the next twenty years we’ll see a renowned personage arise who rejects cell phones and email, and who is available ONLY face to face.
