Many people have pointed out that, aside from the advent of the Smartphone, today’s internet and computer technologies don’t do a whole lot more than they did in the year 2000, at least not for most everyday users. There are, of course, some major exceptions to this. For example, people who use flight simulators will tell you that systems available in 2017 are vastly superior to anything available in 2007. But for most computer and internet users, little has changed since the advent of widespread high-speed connections.
That argument can also be generalized to almost all technology beyond computers. The truth is that, aside from some incremental increases in efficiency and the introduction of various niche technologies, little has fundamentally changed since the 1950s or ‘60s. By the early 1960s, microwave ovens, electronic clocks, relatively fast automobiles and jet airliners all existed and did much the same things that they are capable of doing today. While life expectancy has been extended since the 1960s, due to rapid advances in various areas of medicine, particularly the ability to effectively treat terminal illnesses, even those gains have not been spectacular.
Jason Hope is one of America’s leading internet entrepreneurs. Responsible for the foundation of the first premium mobile content streaming service in the country, Jawa, Hope has made a name for himself as a successful businessman, visionary futurist and magnanimous philanthropist. As an expert on the state of technology, Hope believes that this stagnation that has been seen since the 1950s or 1960s will soon come to an end. It will be shattered by the introduction of coming technologies of what is broadly known as the Internet of Things.
Hope believes that such technologies as self-driving cars, self regulating air conditioning systems and refrigerators that are capable of doing such things as ordering items to be bought, orders that will be fulfilled through automated shopping at grocery stores, will soon transform the ways in which average Americans live their lives to an extent that has not been seen since the Industrial Revolution.
He says these profound changes are only a matter of time.
