In 2007 Kevin Kelly gave a famous TED talk called “The Next 5000 Days of the Web”. That’s 13.69 years, so we’re right where he was talking about. Was he right in his predictions and conclusions? Is that a good thing? What might it mean?
Enough people have mentioned the Simulation to me today that I’m sharing for fun (NOTE: I’m not sure I agree with Elon here – things can be very weird, surreal, magical and still painfully real, all at once). Regardless, we’re all in it together. And that’s a good thing.
