A great article on the next age in human development

This article confirms what I thought.

Nobody wants to say it outright, but the Apple Watch sucks. So do most smartwatches. Every time I use my beautiful Moto 360, its lack of functionality makes me despair. But the problem isn’t our gadgets. It’s that the future of consumer tech isn’t going to come from information devices. It’s going to come from infrastructure.

  • Big screen
  • Physical Keyboard
  • Keyboard that can be swiped !

Negatives :

  • It’s a Blackberry ! 🙂

Ideas for a 21st Caribbean – The future

The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.

—–William Gibson, SciFi Author

Today, I saw my mom’s world change.  She had a video chat with her mother in the UK with Skype.  Thanks to this tool, she will now be able to stay in touch with her sisters and mom’s mum’s at a level that would have been unthinkable 10 years ago.  While she and her sisters were FB friends, this type of communication is asynchronous(timeline) and semi-synchronous (realtime chat) at best.  In addition, my Grandma doesn’t have a FB account.  So the idea that that my mom could see and talk with her mother was definitely a major step forward.

Now, many in the First World may say that this is a trivial task and that they have been there, done that.  This is true. However, I think this is just an example of the quote mentioned above.

As more and more members of the Caribbean diaspora start embracing and implementing technology to solve local problems, the future won’t be the luxury of the technology elite, but in addition allow for my mom to strengthen her family ties.
