Shift Happens

I hereby reserve the right to occasionally digress on issues not DIRECTLY and IMMEDIATELY related to IT staffing in Philadelphia.

This is a fun one, and worth your attention. It was brought to my attention by an associate at ITAG (Innovative Technology Action Group) in Chester County, PA, which I have recently joined.

This video on is one that will re-boot, so to speak, your take on the new reality of our world, our role in it, the rising players and their impact, and what lays ahead. All from the perspective of the relentless exponentially increasing rate of technological advancement of which we are in the midst.

I happen to be just about to finish reading one of my favorite books "The Singularity is Near" by Ray Kurzweil and this video seems to have taken some of it's inspiration, and perhaps even some of it's information, directly from it. Anyone interested in how IT and the growing impact it is having on our lives ought to read it. For those in the business of IT, it ought to be required reading.
