Technology Predictions – Summer 2024

This post is the first in a new series where I talk about technologies and make guesses about how they’ll deliver value in the future. I’ve actually been doing this privately for a few years now and recently decided I should share my thoughts publicly, as I’ll surely learn more that way – both from the responses as well as from the extra thought I’ll put into it before I hit publish. One of my goals in life is to be a great technologist – an expert at identifying technology that can deliver value to consumers and businesses. A lot of people try to be great technologist, but many of them miss. Sometimes it is poor understanding the technology, sometimes it is delusion or denial, sometimes it is lack of execution. I hope this blog series will help me with the former two. With the hope of improving over time

2024 Focus: Half Year Update

Better every year. That is my goal. I believe that through focused effort I can keep improving and ensure my best years are still in front of me. With that in mind, at the start of a new year, I take the time to set my focus for the coming year. By being selective about where I direct my energy, I can achieve results that are exponentially greater than if I split my attention. More details about the process are in this blog post and you can review the results from past years here. 2024 Theme: Movements I’ve made a bit of progress here: The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany – IN PROGRESS (via audio) Evolution of Everything – DONE Change: How to Make Big Things Happen – very obviously relevant – IN PROGRESS (via audio) “How Change Happens” by Leslie R.
