Technology is changing at an ever increasing pace. Just like in horseracing, it's not how fast the technology is changing, it's how the technology is changing fast. Virtually every paradigm to which we have been accustomed is fast becoming obsolete.
I read an editorial in Penthouse magazine (I only bought it for the articles) over 20 years ago written by Frank Herbert (who wrote the Dune Chronicles - one of the best sci-fi reads of all time). He warned about the coming of technology and said that those who didn't learn to control technology would be controlled by it. Boy was he right!
