I read an article the other day on the return of the show Arrested Development..of which I'm a big fan. The article described the TV viewing landscape when the show first aired in 2003. Fewer than 30% of all households had DVD players, and in my mind even more telling, less than 3% of all households used DVRs. These stats are amazing and quite telling. Not because I think our culture and economy revolve around TV (perhaps they do) But rather think about how much technology has changed in just 10 years. My family rarely uses the dvd player anymore, and just 10 years ago that was considered forward thinking technology. 

In a lot of different areas you see this kind of rapid change..medicine, transportation, etc..I have to imagine the same innovation will continue to change our lives in the decade ahead, and alter the economy along with it.
