Fantastic video on the progression of information technology, researched by Karl Fisch, Scott McLeod, and Jeff Bronman, remixed.
This video should be seen by every parent, teacher, counselor, and student. Thank you to Russ Sabella, technology guru extraordinaire, and to Bob Tyra, counseling consultant king, for bringing it to us. It will soon be on the way to my daughter at Stanford and my son at MIT. Thank you so much, Penny Black, School Counselor Los Angeles
wow penny dont name drop too much there hahaha
I agree with the poster above. Interesting, but xenophobic.
So what does it all mean? That we're all still going to die.
What will the impact be on our happiness? Will more information make us happier? It could but not in and of itself. It is all about the "how" which is really about the now. Presence, emotional intelligence, practice, and ethical conduct will be more important than ever. It'll be easy to get lost in such a shifting maze of information. If you haven't started yet, you need to start soon. BREATHE and pay attention!!
Technology vs. emotional stability and social function. Why are more and more people texting/emailing instead of having a real live conversation? Do you know how many people have Masters and Ph.D.yet absolutely no social manners and considered socially inept? It's good to have a balance of academic and worldly intelligence as well as love and compassion. Yes, stop and BREATHE!
Re: The comment concerning "[what will the impact be on our happiness]"~ check out the book entitled HAPPIER. It is used for the #1 course at Harvard for the past several years (taught by the author). It discusses (and helps one discover) the implications of being happy once you 'have it all' or achieve as much success as you ever thought you might-- then what? Great book that will change the way you think about your personal happiness.... amidst the exponential changes we are seeing in our lives and will continue to experience.
