This chapter is pretty interesting. Brings me back to 8th grade, with all of that Algebra. It seems like during the mid 1800's there was a lot of advancement and development in electricity with all of those pioneers around. I wonder what the next 100 years will look like and who today's pioneers will end up being. We know so much more about electricity, and I predict the grid arrangement is going to change due to all the solar energy taking place.
One of my hippies is thinking every day about how fast technology moves in the modern era, especially compared with older history.
1000 and 2000 years ago were relatively the same compared to 100 years ago an now. 1903 someone figured out how to fly a plane that looked like a kite made by bicycle mechanics. 65 years later Neil was walking on the moon.
With electricity and technology in the future, it is going to be something like we can't imagine. If I had to guess, we will have lots of interconnected devices that have a lot of intelligence. Some of us will be trying to merge with computers physically, energy will be in high demand, but we can easily meet that demand with our technology. The unknown, policy, politics and who is in control.
