A couple of weeks back I went to local University one evening to listen to a speech by the CEO of Siemens Canada. His talk was about trends in automation. How disruptive technologies are upending established economies. Many there were students concerned about how they would find employment. For me though I couldn’t help but think that most critical disruptive technology was the democratization of the underlying information itself. Evident to me now the weaving the narrative is no longer a chosen prerogative of a few.
So it goes, the books no longer require Scribes and Prophets. The MSM, though still unaware, have been usurped by technology. They have been turned them to stone. Modern day Luddites dressed in make-up and Pretentious Suits.
