Chris Dixon digests here the eleven reasons we should be excited about the future of technology. If you read any blog post today you should read this one.
It is a fantastic well thought out piece that looks at the future of society and the world we live in with a positive sense of perspective.
The comment from futurist Kevin Kelly i quote below is the reason why we at Rush are so excited right now. The world is changing rapidly, what we are today is nothing like what we will be tomorrow (Trump or no Trump), how do we all work together to invent things, break new ground and do something that has not been done before.
I love the fact that we sit on the cusp of something amazing, i challenge my team and our clients all the time to help push these technology boundaries as far as possible because right now we are sitting on a the future with more opportunities, lower barriers to entry, better odds and more upside if we can get it right.
I'm looking forward to the day my grandchildren ask me what role i played in inventing the world they live in and hopefully telling stories with pride of all the things we accomplished

Right now, this minute. This is the moment that folks in the future will look back at and say, “Oh, to have been alive and well back then!”
