THIS is Why Solos Must Learn Technology and Think Globally

This short video shows you in dramatic terms why you must be on the internet in your marketing and social media efforts and why you must think globally.... even if you have a small town practice.

Unfortunately, I cannot locate the source to provide you the direct video.  But trust me when I say it is extremely worthwhile and eye opening.

Let me know your thoughts. Or, as the video asks, "What does it all mean?"

Hi Susan. I recalled seeing the slides from this video in the book Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds. Looked it up and sure enough it mentions these slides being a stylization of a slideshow originally created by Karl Fisch called "Shift Happpens". It can be found at www.slideshare.net/jbrenman.

It means the pace of change is accelerating and life as we know it will become unrecognizable more quickly. It also means that our learning curves (and amount of training and re-training) will need to increase.

Fasten your seat belts...

Hi Susan,

The source of this appears to be a high school teacher named Karl Fisch:

The amount and pace of technological change is truly scary at times.

Enough blog reading for one day: I'm going to watch "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chonicles." :-)

For a thrilling, seat-of-your-pants view of what "life as we know it will become unrecognizable" means, read Ray Kurzweil's books. Or head to TED.com and listen to Kurzweil's lectures.
