Great photo.  I often wonder what the future of electronics will hold for my grandkids. I can only imagine it will involve some sort of web directly implanted into their brains. I hope it is not too painful ;-)

There are many things taking away from us. When businesses owners subjected to under-intense pressure from left, right and center reliance on some expertise that would deliver and helping achieving targeted goals a big task, this seems impossible today. But to employ Jack of all trades - especially in technology field.

One of the effects of these fast changing business scenarios and the technologies is that no one remain an expert on something for a long time.

Back, say 30 years or so, once you earned your degree , you could rely upon the knowledge you gained for at least a few years.

Now the time you are out from the college, your learning actually starts and it never ends .

It is all the same whether you are an engineer, a doctor , a technician or just aoperator.

Good peice, thanks Brian. It summed up everything in today's ever wrangling ongoing technology innovations and its undisputed power of disruption. 

One thing is certain - we are heading to unknown business path; some businesses are almost gone into extinction, some are emerging/have emerged and would continue for the next 2 or 3 decades, while some are on the verge of collapse and being replaced with newer tools.

Changes are integral part of life and this should be thought to student in ealry part of their university education.

There are many PhD student with specialization in one field. However, if you observe their profile, after five years only 25% of them are working in same field of specialization.

Education and work life teaches new tools and this is continuing process. You must expect chnages in your work and business. If not, perosn may be stagnant and obsolete - situation to fear.

@Brian, thanks for the post. I agree with your point that the photo from Tim Kastelle's blog post tells the entire story. I think we will see more such features being added to smartphone in coming days. For example we will see smartphones being used as projectors.

 

Brian I am not able to view the infographic titled : "Infographic: A Snapshot of Transportation Logistics". Please let me know if the link is broken.
