In my Daily Inspiration the other day, I wrote about technology.
Let’s face one deniable fact -at the same time that the future is rushing at us, it hits us with the relentless frustration that it can cause. While there is much promise there is also peril – the future isn’t always easy! In fact, it can be downright infuriating, maddening, frustrating, appalling incomprehensible, and enraging all at the same time.
Throughout my career, I’ve covered not only the trends that will define what’s next and what we can expect once we get there – but also the challenges that will occur along the way. Much of this has had to do with the often unique and sometimes painful experiences that we as humans face when confronted by technology that is ill-conceived and badly designed. Today’s moment in time finds us mystified by who dreamed up the clunky interface in our car dashboard, the error message on our computer that makes absolutely no sense, or a microwave that has a user interface that seems to be from another planet.
While we marvel about the opportunities of the future, we also need to recognize that it is often a very real challenge to get there. Inspired by my own post, I hit my virtual broadcast studio to film a show about the challenges and opportunities with what comes next!
