Shift Happens

"ShiftHappens" shows the rapidly growing society in which we live. Technology is doubling every two years, and soon computers will be able to exceed the ability to compute of the entire human species, an idea which some, including myself, find disturbing. The sheer magnitude of such a computer is staggering, and that is probably what is so disconcerting about the whole thing. Nevertheless, the facts are interesting and the movie is informative.

I've seen this video and also find it somewhat disturbing! Our world is changing very quickly and we need to change with it!

I am does this make you feel about your future? Are you excited? nervous? unprepared? I would love to hear your take on it.

Yeah, the stuff it says scares me about the future of our country and what could happen if we dont keep up with the world.
