Times have Changed
I just got done watching a movie about artificial intelligence and at the end, man's machine had taken over.
It got me thinking. I grew up in small town America, in a place where if you wanted to gain financially, and I mean for the most part just gain enough to pay the bills and survive. In fact, a lot of that life still remains around here....for now. The price to rent an apartment around here can be about $400 a month where in New York City, it can be $2000 a month.
Back when I was young, there really was not much in the lines of making a great living around here. In many cases, one would have to move out from the area in order to "make it" in the world. My father and I would haul scrap iron in the summer time and work in the woods in the -10 degrees cold brisk mornings.
Boy...thinking back to those days seem so ancient now. A time well past....past well back in time.
Now, I can just press a couple of keys in the comfort of my warm home and money comes flowing in from all over the world.
Just the thought of that while I was young...I don't think my wildest dreams could have painted that picture.
This blog is not about money....
It is about the change happening under our noses without us really even giving two thoughts about it. I am from a different time, living in a new world.
