2024 and Beyond, Bracing for Impact, and Shaping the Future.

by

Dear readers,

I hope you all had a good Christmas and are off to a great start in 2024. The beginning of a new year is a great time for many people to reconsider their beliefs and take a fresh look at emerging issues and technologies. In line with that, I am exploring new topics to potentially write about, including whether we are headed towards a world dominated by AI, common AI agent interactions, blockchain development and existence, Web3/Web5, the metaverse, and more. I’m not even mentioning hardware development or the sudden ubiquity of electric scooters flooding our streets.

It is beneficial to consider where we are headed as a society and what challenges we will face. Whether you like these technological advancements or not, they are happening and will inevitably affect us all sooner or later.  Therefore, it is best to stay informed by reading and learning in order to develop your own independent and well-reasoned opinions, rather than ignoring these changes or relying solely on mass-distributed information.

We likely still have some degree of decentralised control and freedom to make our own choices in this increasingly technologically driven world. The quality of our choices depends on the depth of our knowledge and understanding of the current state of the world.

With that said, I wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2024. Let’s strive to stay knowledgeable together! As the saying goes, united we stand, divided we fall.

Warm regards,

Author JK
