CONNECT + DEVELOP + INNOVATE
I do not think we are aware of what is happening to us yet. We have yet to size up what is going to happen. The other day I came across the interview Gabilondo did with José Luis Cordeiro, a professor at the Singularity University and I had a light bulb moment.
And this, not so much because of the novelty of the ideas introduced by Professor Cordeiro, which ultimately present many of the connections that you end up making yourself once you are familiar with the technologies, but because of the doors he opens in the interview. And from among it all, including our immortality and having to decide (we will see if there is a need to regulate this or not) when to die, what inspires this post is something else: telepathy.
Cordeiro speaks of a third hemisphere in the brain (I think Google is playing with this idea) that would connect the human mind to the cloud via brain waves. Transmission technology via brainwaves is already very advanced, although there is the matter of time needed to refine it. The bandwidth is no longer a negatively influencing factor and the rest is just learning.

I have always felt fascinated by how communications technology alters massive consumption, the market, the services and, in part, ourselves. Analyzing why pornography cornered the online market years ago (formats, themes, privacy and payment methods), why we began to plan and book trips (offers, plans and destinations), why today’s music discs (physical) are for collectors and why we listen to more music (our own or music belonging to the custom lists of others, discoveries and new releases) or why for many shopping is already an activity that takes place through our screens … and it is still not clear to me where changing rooms will fit within a few years time.
Many of us are amazed at how differently we communicate (voiceless and faceless, but with words) with IRC, Messenger, GoogleTalk… and we cannot explain why we stopped doing it. Or can we? I never imagined that my mother was going to say ‘hello son’ through bits, or that I would prefer live texting from the new instant messaging platform than talking over the phone. And even less that the very same day I could be worn out by WhatsApp group discussions.
