Theres been construction on a building near downtown for a year now. It’s coming along nicely. I’m not sure what it was before the re-development, but right now it’s looking like it’s going to be an office building.
A Cross-fit gym attached to my apartment closed it’s business and the building was replaced by offices. On the other side of my apartment a dance studio was replaced by an office space.
Offices are coming up all around me. Is this harking a new age of growth and flourishing industry?
I am cynical about that prospect. I’ve seen the same pattern in the housing crises, so I’m wary of such high level of growth. ”It’s hype” is what I say to myself every time I see it, or hear about so and so finding a Venture Capitalist to fund their internet or mobile idea.
Why is everyone investing so heavily on this industry? Lots of people have made money off of it.. in the past. And that’s the key danger that I fear people, including smart capable successful venture capitalists, are falling prey to.
Past results are not guaranteed to repeat itself in the future.
Something is happening in the tech industry right now. Let’s hope that it’s something great.. but I honestly suspect it’s going to be something bad.
Either way.. the best we can do is try to enjoy the rollar coaster ride that is life.

Imagine that we created a system that scans every asteroid currently around us and projects each trajectory to see if it will ever collide with Earth. Then we find a huge one and it’s gonna hit Earth’s orbit dead on, no angles. And it’s made out of solid metal so it won’t disintegrate much in the atmosphere and it will destroy all of humanity on impact.
So we know this and we start planning for it.. except that it won’t happen for 10,000 years. But will humanity even exist then? We’ll have to assume it will and just figure out a way to make the message last.
So a bunch of people from all over the world team up and they start figuring out a way to create a lasting message that there is going to be a day when a large meteor is going to collide with the Earth, and just watch out for it. They go on a large campaign to spread the message in forms of stories that has proven to implant itself in human psychology in some specific manner so that it will persist throughout time.. in some form, as long as there is human beings communicating with other human beings.
Maybe another sect decides that they wanna do something about it so they start creating weapons to shoot the meteor out of the sky when the time is right. But they have to make the thing last 10,000 years so they create huge indestructible structures and hid weapons inside that will activate at the right time.
Or maybe not. Just saying it’s possible.
