100 years from now…
On the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, I can’t help but reflect on the tragedy. Much has been written about it. Recently, I visited the Newseum in Washington D. C. and came across the front page of the New York Herald, published the day after the disaster. It made me wonder what life was like 100 years ago, before any of the wars, technology breakthroughs, and discoveries that shape our lives today.
What will life be like 100 years from now? 2112 – How many people will live on this planet? Will we have discovered other planets inhabited or not? What will work be like? Will the corporation as we know it today have shifted, gone extinct? What technologies will have emerged? What species will have gone extinct, new ones found? What will be the roles men and women inhabit?
Lot’s of questions. I don’t have any answers, but I can’t help wonder. What’s most important to remember is the following thought: Whatever actions you are taking today will shape 2112 in some shape or form. Pretty mind boggling, isn’t it?
