While searching around for videos that were meant to show the ridiculousness of futurist videos from the past, I stumbled upon a jewel of a video that shows our not-too-distant future.
You can’t just help but imagine that this is the world we live in today where everything is in the present, your life is hackable (for better or worse), and “having game” is actually now about gaming.
There are far better ways to live life than to get too caught up in a Google Glass world. I’ve made sure to switch on the “Do Not Disturb” toggle on my iPhone when appropriate, and my friends and I stack our phones during dinner.
I get made fun of sometimes but I’m probably one of the most “analog” digital guys you’ll ever meet.
My only advice: take time to explore real maps when you arrive in a new city and get your thumbs dirty with ink and read actual newspapers and magazines.
Keeping one foot in the future and one in the past will help you stay grounded.
The futurist videos of the past seem less ridiculous when paired up with what we see today.
