We’ve Gone Back To The Future!
Great Scott! Today’s the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown flew to in Back To The Future II.
Many of the futuristic predictions featured in the 1989 movie do indeed exist today, such as video chat, wearable technology and hands-free gaming.
But, the futuristic movie didn’t predict what’s arguably the best aspect of 2015: using technology as a means for market disruption.
Today’s technology far surpasses all of the predictions in the 1989 film (well, aside from the hover board), disrupting one market after another.
Take a minute to think about it. Airbnb can help you find a place to stay, no matter where you are. Uber takes you were you need to go, with the click of a button. And Fintech companies make it easier for anyone with a dream to start a business.
Society as a whole has a lot to be proud of. Instead of investing our time in hover boards, we’re working to leverage technology to make people’s lives easier. It’s safe to assume that Doc Brown would be proud :).
