Leverage technologies

 Today I needed to take a train. In the past, I would have gone to the train station and buy it directly, because there is always space in the train. But a friend of mine told me that the reserved seats finished very fast two days ago and therefore it is better to buy it on-line as soon as possible. So I did it, and everything was really good… for me. There were many people who weren’t able to find a seat on that train.

Therefore, in today’s world where you can buy a ticket faster and convenient on-line, there is no excuse in being surprised if you can’t find a place to sit.

This makes the old generation and people who don’t like or accept innovations in a very disadvantage place.

Technologies, like fax and teletext, are already obsolete. We as species need to evolve and adapt to live a convenient life or join the rest who can’t find seats on the train.

The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
