Another multi-number Flash movie
There seems to be an abundance of Flash movies out there that show us just how dramatically things are changing in the world of communications, advertising and media. HERE is another one.
Again, I don't know if the numbers presented (a bit fast for my tired old eyeballs) are accurate or not, but the story they tell is certainly true. It can be astounding for those of us who remember three TV channels, four or five radio stations...most of which we couldn't hear after the sun went down and we had to tune for WLS in Chicago or some other station that played our music...and, of course, no cell phone, Internet, or Facebook.
Heck, a blog was some other word misspelled.
And I'm not talking about going back to the '50s. As the video points out, change causes change, and it causes the whole thing to speed up.
Accept it? You may as well. It has its own momentum and there is nothing you can do to slow it down. And certainly not stop it.
The challenge is to help guide it in a positive way if you can. Or make the most of it for your own purposes. These are marvelous times for some, frightening as hell for others. Some fight it, ignore it, pray about it, or merely hide. But a couple of things are for certain.
It is inevitable. And the revolution has already begun.
