    The last place I worked had 40% turnover annually. I would just walk around and not know anybody at all hardly. Dysfunction was the order of the day.

    Some people are going to rule by not giving in to the new ways of doing everything, they will let everybody else go down that road while they hang out with a few good friends.

    Quantum computers will be online with time sold in picosecond intervals probably. If they always need near zero temperatures and huge magnetic fields they won't be in your laptop but if they are as incredibly fast as they should be there will be cycles for everybody.

    Me too. Reminds me of the book "Future Shock" by Toffler many years ago. It's like the bulk of mankind's time on earth moved at an arithmetic pace, then sometime in the the 20th century (or towards the end of the 19th century with the Industrial Revolution) progressed to a geometric pace, and now we are warping into a logarithmic pace. Yikes.
