Major Changes Are Coming

I've been in the technology business for a long time. I was part of the great Internet bubble of the 90's in a company awash with investor money. I also worked as a Sampsonite gorrilla; beating up software trying to make it break. I remember token ring, BNC adaptors and other things non-tech people don't care about. And in all that time I have learned to notice a few things.

There are three signs to look for:


  • big players in the technology industry start making strange and erratic business moves

  • the government has dumped us into another economic mess

  • and big business is broke
When these three things happen, be ready for a massive shift in how business works. This is the signal that a large change is coming. If you don't pay attention, you'll get left behind.
