The FUTURE is approaching faster than one can handle. In 1998, Kodak had 170,00 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years and, most people won't see it coming.Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore 's law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3-D printing, agriculture and jobs.
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution! Welcome to the Exponential Age!
