Technology is thus enabling arbitrary numbers of people from around the world to assemble in remote locations, without interrupting their ability to work or communicate with existing networks. In this sense, the future of technology is not really location-based apps; it is about making location completely unimportant.

  1. Indeed. I just wish it happened quicker. There are still so many business owners who just don’t get it and force their employees to commute traditionally, when it would be better for all if they “woke up” to this and got with the times and the technology.

  2. I couldn’t agree more, and not just because I love working from home. Just thinking about all of the possible combinations of people working together that remote work allows. It’s amazing to think about how many new creations this is enabling.

  3. Technology is just another attempt to satisfy human… our primal instincts, which have remained the same over the last 2 million years. Technology or no technology, the patheticity – killing animals, felling trees, destroying forests, polluting environment, consuming excessive resources, playing power games, etc. – will continue.

    The location may become unimportant in the future, but our craving for domination, superiority, etc. will adapt to suit the new conditions.

    Technology is redundant. It has always been.
