re: Trends of the 21st Century VIEW POST


Glad to hear some thoughtful words from Cologne - where people tend to mostly turn off their brains this time of the year :).

Especially your phrase "Big changes don't happens without resistance." for explaining the increase of right wing support made me feel a bit more optimistic.


Turning the brain on and off are both great activities ones in a while =)

made me feel a bit more optimistic

The most optimistic thing I have read the last years was WBW's " The AI Revolution: The Road to Superintelligence". Ironically I don't think much of AI. But the mechanisms of evolution as explained there keep me excited about what is yet to come!

There is a lot of other optimistic stuff out there. Luckily the world is not as bad as the news try to tell us.

To feel more optimistic I can also recommend checking out some stuff by "Hans Rosling" – like his famous TED talk.

And as technologist, we are in the best position to change things as shown by Bret Victor :)
