The Next Great Fortunes… From Tech… Again

Posted: October 11, 2008 in Technology and Business
What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said? 
 
Good times don’t last forever.  But neither do the bad times.
 
To this end, technology has always helped the global economy repair itself.
 
Life sucked in the 70’s… then the PC came along.
 
Life sucked at the end of the 80’s… then the Internet came along.
 
Life sucked at the beginning of the 00’s… then two of the massive industries in a capitalistic world — advertising and information — got turned on their heads by Search and Web 2.0.
 
Life is sucking now.  Which means the global economy needs tech… again.
 
Next up?  Using technology to disrupt two other massive industries in a capitalistic world — transportation and energy.
 
The components will come out of a garage.  (Which has to be among the greatest of ironies.)  This is where the next great fortunes will be built.
