What Keeps You Up At Night?
David had a great response too, which basically boiled down to being excited by, but having a fear of not being able to keep up with the rapid pace of change the online world will experience over the next 10 years.
I absolutly agree. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about where we are lately and trying to take stock of the union (as it were). I’ve been trying to remember where I was 15 years ago – university- and what I was doing from a technology standpoint – I had recently bought my first CD & my first LaserDisc, was using Pine Mail to check my email and was probably still using a BBS on a 2400 baud modem -
We’ve come a LOOOONG way in 15 short years, LaserDiscs are long since obsolete (although I still have a small collection :), CDs and even DVD’s are slowly following and thinking too much about using a 2400 baud modem WILL keep me up at night.
Thinking about how far we’ve come online from just four years ago – when audio and video were little more than an Internet pipe dream – makes my head spin. Trying to see where we’re going to be 10 years from now is equal parts exciting and down right scary.
Of course, that’s one of the main reasons I’ve started this blog now. This is my little corner of the Web to poke, prod, experiment, ask questions and otherwise look at all those things that ‘Keep my up at night’.
And I really want to know what ‘Keeps You Up At Night’ too.
Tomorrow I’ll take a closer look at some of the other things that are making my head spin lately and give you a bit of an idea of some of the things I’ll be discussing around here!
