April 2, 2014: Technology, Part I
I was in a technology meeting recently. What was our vision for the future was the theme?
Are you kidding me? We need the equivalent of a pencil. Any idea how amazing a pencil is? It works across all kinds of platforms. It allows expression in words, in numbers, in musical notations, in art, in science, in politics, in religion. It doesn’t go down because of location. It creates, it erases, and if it starts to get all sloppy, it’s easy to sharpen it up. And it’s economical—you can get a bunch for a little. Yep, you get all of that and it’s still user friendly.
I can’t do it. But you technology geeks can. Come up with the new pencil. And do it soon.
