The Digital Age is very green......

We no longer need to manufacture, package, and ship movies, as online delivery of the same replaces CDs.

Paper letters and stamps are replaced by email and text messaging.

Chemical photo paper is replaced by digital photographs.

Paper money, checks, and coins replaced by digital money.

Parking ramp workers replaced by machines to accept payment.

Airline check in completed digitally no paper tickets required.

Real Estate presented with photos online....no needless driving required.

Digital delivery of news replaces newpapers and magazines.

We could go on and on....a few years ago, this was the future....today it is reality.

In the future, the inefficient and resource consuming current real estate structures will be replaced by more efficient environments and communities.

What many of you Fools don't understand is the higher UNemployment and shutting down of America is actually the progress of society as we move forward into a more sustainable digital age.  The issue will be ending a life as you knew it and adjusting to a brand new one...........the digital age simply does not require as much workers, resources, or time to effectively complete task under the current system.

Amazing, and you thought Alstry was blogging about doom and gloom.

Now the question is how will we morph into this age as many will go kicking and screaming.......since our entire economy is levered into a dying industrial age, and most net worths......likely possibilities include financial collapse and/or war.

This is not a prediction, simply mathematically effective.

Video game sales fall again in January

Just part of the deindustrialization process and progress to digitization as fewer and fewer are working and we restructure our economy.

So I have a question for you.  If this is how we're leveraging into the digital age, how will we get the things that run the ditigal age. 

 You can look at the future as much as you want, we're still going to need resources, that will be manufactured and sold into goods.  I don't care how "green" we become, someone will need to pick through the trash to find the aluminum for the next "computer" someone will have to find the silicon, or whatever material we're using at that momement.  And quiet simply we'll ALWAYS need the farmer who keeps food in our bellies. 

In the industrial revolution, agriculturally outup jumped.  Shouldn't we see the same thing with a digital revolution, our industry should be able to produce more with less?
