Going through some of the timeline of technological advancements was pretty informative. I liked learning about the technological advancements that we are pretty close to because Tim Harper was right about the rate of evolution of our technology.

We are already beginning to see some of the innovations that were listed in the Forbes article and the bit.ai blog post. Cryptocurrency and NFTs have a pretty big market place already.

I feel like I have read a few places where they mention how research into the vaccine has opened doors to new possibilities.
I feel like it is a good thing to know what is coming so you can get the jump on it, especially if it is a field that you might be interested in or one that can change the world.
