    There are definitely some good points here about the direction of industry. Some parts that caught my attention was the mention of “the age of abundance”. I thought this to be an interesting point because I’m not sure it will happen as many imagine. This is because people have always preferred “more”. Solar energy would be used in addition to previous methods, not instead of. Due to the nature of technology, it would be hard to build surplus because as we gain more energy, technology figures out better was to use it. More energy means more powerful computers, faster machinery, and more energy consuming devices. The same goes with data usage. A simple example of this can be used for DVDs. With the growing storage space on a DVD, we could put multiple movies onto one disc OR we could put the same movie on with much higher quality picture (higher quality=more information=more data usage). I’m not saying the age of abundance won’t happen, rather it may be further than some expect.

    Also, you mentioned the digital age making changes such as online banking and tax software. I wanted to support this statement by adding other noteworthy game changers. The first is the recent implementation of ApplePay, while I’m not sure of what ripples this technology may bring, I do think it is the beginning to a different style of payment. Secondly, (and probably the largest game changer) is the use of the new cyber-currency “Bitcoin”. This is a virtual currency which is backed by NOTHING, yet some retailers (Newegg, Microsoft, to name a few) are accepting this for tangible goods. I can’t ever think of another scenario like this in human history. What effects could this have on businesses and economy as a whole? Perhaps I’m missing on seeing an opportunity?

    This wasn’t meant to be a rant, but your podcast did make me think a bit so consider it successful!

      Thanks for your comments. I agree that the idea of “Bitcoins” does put a real twist on the economy in a very real way. Other currencies are at least backed by the “faith” people have in the government that issued it. It will be interesting to see how ApplePay shifts the retail environment. Google has has their Google wallet for quite a while and retailers have been reluctant to invest in the equipment to receive those types of payment. However, using a smart phone and taking payments through it has seen a pretty successful and quick integration. Glad I made you think.
