Posts Tagged ‘On The Future’

Andrew Russell, a professor at Stevens Institute of Technology.  “Every jump in technology draws attention and capital away from existing technologies used by the 99 percent, which therefore undermines equality, and reduces the ability for people to get onto the ‘playing field’ in the first place.”
Russell also reminded me of the famous William Gibson quote, “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.”
“I have never been able to understand why anyone would assume that the future would be evenly distributed,” Russell said.  “To put this in a different way:  I have never been able to find any evidence from human history to suggest that the future will be evenly distributed.”

The world we want for our kids — one with opportunity and security for our families; one with rising standards of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet; one that’s innovative and inclusive, bold and big-hearted — it’s entirely within our reach.  The only constraints on America’s future are the ones we impose on ourselves.  That’s always been the case with America — our destiny isn’t decided for us, but by us.  And as long as we give our young people every tool and every chance to decide the future for themselves, I have incredible faith in the choices they’ll make.

Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day.  You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
