Tech is just out there, with its incremental and osmotic effect.
What society chooses to do with it is entirely different.
There will come a time when we do need to switch to energy-efficient light bulbs, paint our roofs white and use plug-in hybrid vehicles. All 7 billion of us.
They seem to have operated on a different plane.
The osmotic effect stops at their county line. Off-grid.
No stimulus, no response. No Playboy bunnies, only horse and buggy.
Meanwhile, 300 millions Chinese have been lifted out of poverty just as millions of American children are now entering it (boarding the school bus from outside of their motel rooms).
It’s the difference between real noodle versus instant noodle. Try it to see what I mean.
The broth, slow cooking and osmotic effect. Something still needs time and not rushed into.
Like cleantech adoption.
