I gave a talk in Atlanta last spring featuring some of my “hot things” for tech going forward.
This slide — a bit tongue-in-cheek, but fundamentally serious — tried to slice history into three eras, one pre-dating Gutenberg, one from Gutenberg to now, and one going forward. The one going forward uses video a lot of places where we use text today.
Not implausible. But what will go along with text? I think sometimes the Enlightenment was predicated on following long text arguments rather than “short-form” video. We’re certainly going to lose our privacy in the coming era. Will we lose the whole Enlightenment sense of “self” as well?
