Yesterday, I addressed a large meeting of professional managers at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. And whenever I speak about the future and future technologies to such groups and organizations, I tell them that they need to keep a very open mind regarding the future.
To this end, if I would have told you only five years ago that someone would be willing to pay $150,000 to have a dead pitbull (named Booger no less) cloned, would you have believed it?
Well, this strange vision of the future has now come true according to this article.
My point is that unless you follow the exponential advances in information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and the cognitives sciences, a great many things which sound either impossible or far-fetched today could very well come to fruition much sooner than you expect. It’s all the more reason that you learn to jump the curve.
