Watch out for the Technological revolution. In the same way as the agricultural revolution changed the world centuries ago and the industrial revolution changed the world a century ago, the technological revolution will be even faster and more dramatic than any before it. Everyone is more connected than ever, we are all on our phones too much and have “no free time” yet we watch a box for 2 hours a day and go on facebook or twitter for the remaining 5 hours…. But yet everyone thinks their so busy and have no time, so technology advances us and speed up everything.
Why I believe the Tech Revolution will be a good thing
There is no doubt that the tech rev is coming. And if you think it isn’t for some strange reason then feel free to leave my blog forever. But if like me you think it is coming and you are not sure if it will be a good or a bad thing, then let me put your mind at rest. I believe the tech rev is going to be extremely good for everyone, the environment and the world in general. Crime will decrease, humans will live longer, the reduction of fossil fuels, renewable energy will increase through the roof and generally the world will be a better place.
Here is how it will work
Speed – Faster is better and technology allows us to do/make/be everything quicker, and generally more effectively too. 100 years ago if you want to travel from the UK to the USA it would have taken you weeks. Nowadays you can do it in 7 hours and for half the price too. If you look at the new udi u818a drone you can see really how fast this tech is moving. The interesting thing as well is the cost of these tech advancements. For example this quadcopter cost only £900! Can you believe that? 5 years ago this would cost you over £20,000 for even a basic model, now its under £1,000 and its an upgraded model! Crazy to think about the speed technology moves.
Environment – There is no 2 ways about it, the environment is not in a good shape. The overuse of fossil fuels, and the general increase in population has led to a large increase in Carbon Dixoide as well as a number of other bad things that I can’t be bothered to explain here. But new tech is actually better for the environment. As governments come under increasing pressure from individuals to look into new renewable energy it becomes obvious that Solar energy and wind are great ways to just remove fossil fuels all together. But obviously as Oil and Gas companies are a huge share of the wealth, this is turning out to be a slow process. Luckily Elon Musk is revolutionising the car industry single handily.
I hope you agree that by improving just 2 small elements in speed and the environment this has a knock on effect to half the world’s population. Sometimes it can be hard to grasp but I believe that if everyone pulls together then we can actually save this planet, not through tree hugging or anything like that, but through smart technological advances.
