Big changes in the world seem to sneak up on you. One day you reflect on the way things used to be and wonder how the heck we got here.
Anyone who has kids knows what I mean. My 13-year-old daughter is tall and beautiful and writes songs. I can remember the day she was born. How did that happen? I see her every day but I don’t see the changes happening in real-time.
Technology does this kind of thing to us as well. I remember a time when there were no cell phones. But in a blink of an eye, traditional landlines became extinct. Have you seen a phone booth lately?
Speaking of phones, I remember receiving my first text message during surgical residency and having no clue what was going on. Now I text more than I talk to people on the phone.
Ok…you get the idea. Now what if you actually noticed these happening under your own nose in real-time. On the tech side, that would probably make you a wealthy investor.
If you recognized the Amazon phenomenon 15 years ago while it was developing, you would have made a ton of money. If you missed it, welcome to the club. I, for one, wasn’t paying much attention. And to be perfectly honest, I didn’t have much money to invest back then anyway.
So what are the things that are going to become part of the fabric of our society in the next 15- 20 years? I can think of a few things but nothing so obvious and specific as the growth of bitcoin and its ecosystem.
Right now we are seeing countries adopt it as legal tender. How crazy is that? I suspect that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
