New at Futurismic: The Recession and the Steep Upward Slope

I’m an early adopter.  But new technology is coming out so fast, I can’t adopt it all.  I sat down to write a short pithy paragraph about that  for this blog, and out came a whole essay — so it’s at Futurismic.  The basic idea is that it feels like we’re going backwards in a lot of ways.  Recessions.   Austerity programs.  Slow job growth.  All the bad news we’re hearing every day.  But maybe we’re heading into that unknown territory of tech change so rapid we can’t keep up.

Some days I feel like I’m hanging onto my geek cred by my fingernails.

I’d love comments on the essay- here, or there.
