The Future is cloudy

Past 50 years

  • The most important technology in the past 50 years, is the Integrated Circuit.

  • The most amazing development in the past 25 years, is the Internet Information explosion which will continue at an exponential rate. It has changed our society from an Industrial to an information society.

  • Decision & Timing are Important


  • The most significant development in the next 15 years, will be the nano technology. Here the chemistry, nano-robotics, nano-medicine, and nano-electronics will be combined to make the most astounding break throughs in every field.

Decision & Timing are Important

  • 1.The Wrong Decision, at the Wrong Time, Results in Disaster.

  • 2.The Wrong Decision, at the Right Time, Results in a Mistake.

  • 3.The Right Decision, at the Wrong Time, Results in Rejection.

  • 4.The Right Decision, at the Right Time, Results in Success.

The Future is up to you

  • Some people make things happen,

  • Some people watch things happen,

  • Other people wonder what happened.

  • The rest only criticize those that make things happen,

  • Be part of the solution, and not part of the problem.

  • Keep learning, it is a never ending process.
