Mental shifts

When I was a teenager, and computers where just starting to become common things in Italian households, I remember a family friend used to be convinced that they could transmit viruses that where dangerous to people.

What happened is that he probably heard about computer viruses, and he just stuck to his own definition: viruses are a danger for human beings.

This challenge in making new ideas fit into old mental concept and ideas is very common. And if you fall into that, you are not an idiot or uneducated. You simply still have not had the mental shift.

And for that, you are pretty much always in time.

For the best or for the worst

You can set rules for the best case scenario or you can set rules for the worst case scenario.

When you use the best case scenario as a basis, you trust that things will progress well, that people are trustworthy, that nothing terrible or horrible will happen, that “bad” is a situation that can still be managed without much pain.

When you use the worst case scenario as a basis, you look at what will go wrong, at those who will betray you or not keep their part of the deal, at principles that need to be protected, at a “good” situation that is very difficult to digest.

Socially responsible

Many companies claim that they will be changing the World – or the way the World does this and that. Few even actually understand what changing the World means.

In Finland, a local grocery chain has declared themselves “bully-free zone” (article linked in Finnish). And it’s a fantastic win.

Not because it’s their business. Not because they make money from it. Not because they are getting free publicity.

But because it makes sense.

  • Bullying is a problem, in Finland like anywhere else.
  • Bullying happens mainly at school or around schools.
  • In Finland in particular, kids go to school and back home on their own, from as early as 7. That makes the journey home-school-home a problem for a bullied kid.
  • This grocery chain has a lot of local stores, often not far from schools.
  • Stores employ familiar adults (you shop there every day), they are open long hours, they are well lighted (Finland gets long dark days in winter), and there’s typically other people around.
  • So, they promote that every employee at their grocery chain is a safe adult for kids to turn to when bullied.

It must be one of the best executed corporate social responsibility campaigns ever.

Artificially Indispensable

Artificial Intelligence is going to change the world. Perhaps.

But it’s not going to do it on its own. So the opportunity for all those who are interested in digging further is to become an expert in using AI to create efficiencies in different areas. That’s how you make it a more human tool and how you position yourself as indispensable in the job market.

Nobody is looking for the one who resisted the new technology until it hit the masses.


Input

Write three paragraphs about how blogging will be in 2033. Use some funny predictions with a hint of reality. Be creative.

Output

In 2033, blogging will be a dramatically different experience from what we know today. For starters, blogs will no longer require you to use a computer or laptop at all! It’s possible that by then every single person on earth will have an implanted device with an artificial intelligence that connects us directly to the internet and each other. We’ll be able to blog from our brains, with a single thought sending out a message to the world.

No longer will we have to go through the hassle of typing or clicking on buttons; instead, our thoughts and ideas will be transmitted within seconds. We won’t even need words anymore as blogging technology has advanced so much that pictures, videos, and even feelings will be automatically broadcasted to others.

Another major change that we’ll see by 2033 is the ability for us to blog in virtual reality. This means that people won’t have to just read our words, they’ll be able to experience them too! You can imagine walking into a room and being surrounded by other people’s blogs, each presented in a unique and vivid way that captures the reader’s attention like no other medium can.

Blogging is sure to be an amazing experience by 2033, and it will be exciting to see how technology continues to evolve and shape the way we communicate with one another. Who knows what else might be possible that we can’t even imagine now!
