Shift Happens — The world is going to change a lot in the near future

Technological changes in our society tend to be exponential rather than linear. Some examples of this include:

  • The density of transistors on integrated chips doubles every 24 months.
  • Hard drive capacity increases about 40% per year (do you remember when that 20 MB hard drive seemed huge?)
  • Computer RAM has gone from kilobytes in the 80s, to megabytes in the 90s, to gigabytes in the 00s.
  • Etc…

What does the future hold? Check out the short video Shift Happens.

How will we as Christians respond to the technological changes that await us? What is the potential for good? What is the potential for evil?
