We all saw Google’s numbers surge. I remember the last time I feel this way was a decade ago. Something is in the works. The market responds. New apps, new ways of accomplishing things.
This might be it.
Maybe it didn’t come in the shape or form we were expecting i.e. green shoots. But it seems right. A surge in productivity, efficiency and confidence. We barely scrap the surface of Web 2.0.
We will soon have to do away with yesterday’s vocabulary, such as “the engine of the economy”, “ramping up” etc.. all belong to the Industrial past.
In their places, let’s talk about “intelligent search”, “smart appliances” etc….
In short, minimize chores, and optimize passion.

World’s median age is now 28. But in a decade, this median age will change dramatically. Future aging world population.
(Imagine summer concert full of old rockers, wearing golf shirts).
However it turns out, we celebrate the triumph of human imagination, invention and innovation. One day, the machine will finish this blog for me.
It already knows based on a year’s worth of data what I am going to say next.
So I can go fetch my second cup of coffee. Have a great weekend.
