They say it’s a bubble. It comes and goes. It happened with the railroads. It happened with the electricity. It happened with the radio. It happened with the computers. It happened with the internet (Tech bubble of late 90s). And yet it will happen again with another unforeseen new technology.
So, the technology is never the primary cause of either greatness or decline. US lost Vietnam war even though they were well equipped with advanced technology.
No technology can create a culture of discipline. No technology can create a driving force for any organization or a company. No technology can turn the wrong people to the right people (and even companies and organizations).
A technology can only act as an essential driver in accelerating forward momentum of any individual (or organization/company).
Don’t fall in the trap of technology, it’s just a bubble and is dynamic…
