The Direction of Travel – Trends or Journeys?

Change | Cloud | Digital Evolution | IT Industry | IT Infrastructure | MSP

The thing about trends is that it’s never certain where they’re going to end up. If it was they would be journeys, not trends. Trends suggest a direction of travel, like the road ahead on a murky day. Even then trends don’t necessarily tell the whole story about what might be just around the corner. […]

Are Some Technologies Moving too Fast for Society to Keep Pace?

Change | Data | Digital Evolution

One simple example could be the disposability of consumer applications of rapidly developing technologies whereby products that need specific batteries simply fade out of circulation as manufacturers cease to produce certain items when demand slumps.

We might forgive those who have decided to avoid reading the newspapers or to find something, and often anything else, to watch rather than the TV news in their attempts to reduce the amount of negativity in the orbit of their world.
