Techie Corner – 2016 – Post #5 – The Cyberization of Everything

How do we balance out the coming cyberization of everything?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Here are some current and near-future examples of cyberization.

  • Hardcopy books (“solid” atoms) –> E-books (“flowing” electrons)
  • Traditional manufacturing and shipping (“solid” atoms) –> 3D printing in the home (software is downloaded (“flowing” electrons), no shipping needed)
  • Traditional warfare on the battlefield (“solid” atoms) –> Recruitment online (“flowing” electrons) with localized battles anywhere in the world
  • Human connections (“solid” atoms) –> Virtual reality relationships (“flowing” electrons)

The best antidote to cyberization is human touch, touching other humans and touching the Earth. I recommend lots of hugging and gardening.
