WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY TODAY?

I think technology is a tool for the world to activate ideas and connect with each other. Sometimes tech can be overwhelming because we are cutting corners and finding crazy ways to let computers guide our lives, but when applied right, it can make things incredibly easy to access, speed up time, and have a much more effective way of getting things done.

Don't let machines do jobs that people do best.

 

WHAT IS THE DEVELOPMENT THAT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST?

Flying cars.
