    I grew up with the first modem - it was a keyboard with a telephone receiver (you actually put the land line phone, ear piece and microphone, into the receiver cradle) and dialed up the number. There were no monitors, just a paper feed which produced the two way communication; your input from the keyboard and the response from the other end. It took about 7 years before they produced the monitor. Back then, when we needed to know something, we went to libraries.

      I am not from such generation, but I am from an era when it could, and often did take hours to download a 3MB file. Such files would have to be divided into 3 volumes so that they would fit into 3 floppy disks. The file would then have to be combined from the 3 disks before it could be used.
      My first computer had a 64MB graphics card, and it was regarded as top quality Nvidia card when Nvidia was worth a fraction of what it is worth today.
      CPU's were relatively slow, most operating systems were ridiculously vulnerable to viruses and network breaches alike. Permanent storage devices had little capacity, which, in the end, was irrelevant as internet and intranet connections were painfully slow even under the best protocols. Relatively simple simulations would take days to complete (if the operating system did not crash in the meantime).
      On top of that, the whole experience was very noisy, and having multiple machines in a room would raise the temperature rather quickly and significantly. Nice in winter, not so nice in the summer.
      But... 30 years from now, people will have similar levels of complaint over today's machines, especially if quantum computing makes its big break towards the masses in that timeframe.

    My grandmother was born in 1896. I got to spend some time with her in her later years. Stories she told me:
    - walking on the board walk of times square, and the stench of horse manure in the dirt streets.
    - Northern Manhattan was farmland... mostly dairy.
    - using a pump by the sink for drinking water (in Queens). Boiling water on the stove for a bath.
    - firewood and coal stoves being the primary heat source in buildings.
    - riding on a stage coach to the summer camp upstate.
    By the time she died at age 90 the Apollo program had ended.
    I recall that most people belonged to AAA or another auto club, which provided free maps, so if you were going from LA to NYC you would stop by the AAA office and pick up all the maps needed for the trip. Glove boxes were stuffed full of maps. In the same way that the life skills that indigenous peoples had which allowed to in nature indefinitely are largely lost, the parts of our brains that remembered maps of roads and highways have gone away. Hopefully we are using that part of our brains for something productive. 😄
    One other thing I remember from the 70s and 80s. Drinking and driving was waaay more accepted. Every yearbook I had from high school had a dedication page to the students who had died, almost all from drinking and driving. That was a death rate of .5% to 1% per class for four years.
    The highway deaths were > 50K per year, largely due to OUI. Today the death rate is about half that based per 1000 drivers, and about one third per mile traveled.

      This really reminds me of some stories from my Great Grandfather! He was born in 1891 and lived to be 101, so I knew him in my childhood. One thing I remember him talking about is that as a young man he was a milkman delivering in the Chicago area, by horse-drawn carriage. He would often go to the pub after work with his coworkers and it didn't matter how drunk they got because the horses knew the way home. So I can totally see how it took so long for people to see drunk driving as the hugely dangerous problem it is.

    An idea I have for future transportation: Intercontinental bridges, connected via man-made oceanic structures. Similar to the concept of undersea cables that are used to connect data centers between continents, so too might citydwellers choose to travel - either above or below the surface. Though, the more I think about that the less I'd want to actually do it. We would need transports capable of traveling in excess of 500 mph to make the trips meaningful, but - in theory - it could be viable. Who knows?

    • @leoarc1061
      @leoarc1061 Před měsícem +3

      I think that intercontinental trains would be the more feasible solution. Most likely using high speed trains, which will themselves carry the cars (allowing the cars to be charged in the process if needed).
      At that point in terrestrial or underground transportation history we will likely be talking about Mach numbers rather than distance over time. It will be very difficult, perhaps prohibitive, for trains to travel supersonically above ground, but underground? Where noise pollution is not an issue? Yes, I can see trains going up to Mach 2, maybe a little bit above it before heat becomes the limiting factor.

She took it regularly for about 2 1/2 years, without chemo, and has recently found out she's in remission. If she's still clear after 2025 they're going to use her case as a study in a paper to try to get the medication mass produced. There is absolutely progress in that field, and I'm happy because not only will people benefit from that, but I love my mom and she gets to stick around.

As a boomer myself it was primarily 2 things: the first was to look it up in an encyclopedia and the second was to find someone who was 'smart' on a subject. I did the second quite a bit as a teenager trying to learn about electronics. I'd go bug the hell out of my uncle who had a TV repair shop. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and also enjoyed that I could help him load the TVs into his truck and go with him to deliver them. Good times.

    In car navigation is so entrenched that I can't believe we actually pulled out a book of maps to find a location. But we did. The index told you what page a street was on & which xy coordinates to consult. If you wanted to plot a route you had to follow the road by flipping through to adjoining pages. Tabs on the top, bottom & left & right told you which maps were joined. Now, when I'm doing Doordash, I accept an order & Maps pops up instantly then directs me to the customer's location. Voice navigation also allows me to keep my eyes on the road, not the map.

Not to mention longer periods of time without needing to refuel, or possibly not needing to refuel for months or even years.

    Cars will still be around but there will be more alternatives - not just because of technology like ebikes, scooters or whatever the next big thing is but also because more people are starting to realise that urban living is actually pretty great and car dependent suburbia shouldn't be the only option. Zoning and other regulations like parking mandates are starting to change to allow some suburban areas to become more urban. It took 70 years to develop the car dependant suburban sprawl we have now, so it wouldn't be surprising if it took 70 years to wind it back, but by 2100 I think most cities will have a lot more people living in medium to high density mixed-use neighbourhoods where public transport is fast and frequent and simply walking can get you to many of the places you want to go.

    You're correct that population decline connotes economic contraction if all other factors remain constant. But I would predict that all other factors will not remain constant. Growth in energy consumption can bring about increase in productivity that can sustain a growing economy even under population decline - if energy becomes cheaper and cleaner (and I believe it will as we bring on cleaner forms of nuclear fission to fill the gap until we finally crack the difficult nut of nuclear fusion) will be able to provide an increase in per capita energy consumption by orders of magnitude, leading to an economy of abundance, so the standard of living of the smaller population could be fantastically improved over what we are even capable of imagining today as we move toward surpassing civilization level 1.0 on the Kardashev scale.

Like at the hospital apothecary where I worked... They had a tube network between a few of the main buildings in the complex and they'd put small medicine packages in capsules that would travel through the tubes to other buildings within a minute or two. Actually, a larger scale implementation of something like that on a city, or at least city block scale will probably be more or less common well before 2100.

If one day we have a system where you literally just press a "checkout" button on an Amazon-type site and have the print start automatically, then I could see it becoming more widespread. it needs to exactly as easy as online shopping for the "print it at your house" part to be worth it to the average consumer imo

      And the printers that are available on a consumer-ish level are soooo slow. It can take hours to print a simple plastic toys. Pretty sure I could order a box of LEGOs online and have them delivered in less time than it would be to print all those components on the type of 3D printer I, as an average person, have access to. And those are tiny toy plastic blocks, useful for education and recreation, but not for, example, constructing a retaining wall, never mind an actual building. I’m sure that industry has 3-D printers that are faster, and use more durable materials, but I agree with you. (Or, at least I think I’m understanding you correctly.) I can see 3D printers changing manufacturing in 100 years, but I think there still will *be* manufacturing and distributor(s) before the end product reaches the consumer.

      3d printing at the current stage is like dot matrix printing, if you remember that. Paper with the holes on the sides you had to tear off afterwards. One day, hopefully, 3d printing will be like laser printing in comparison to dot matrix printing. Speed is a huge factor, but ease of use is a bigger one. Solve either of those issues and you'll make millions. Solve both and you'll make billions.

      User friendly in 3d printing needs to come from lookimg at what was done with CNC processing. Uh. Not the kind of CNC your neighbors do and enjoy but Computer Numerical Control. The tools where standardized then computers started taking over the numerical plotting, all going back to a standard file format, and now the machines can tell what tools are loaded in if they are good or dull they make it as safe and simple as possible for a high power multi ton machine whipping around.
      Where as 3D printers tried to take the oppsite direction trying to take from paper printing, but allowing (sometimes) standard formats for the files, meanwhile not every control box can accept multi-media printing thats an issue, and the multi media heads are locked behind each print companies IP etc etc etc, and none of them have agreed on a srandard for just selling the raw materials or labeling them or somehow communicating with the machine what the feed rates, step hight and heat needs to be.
      And thats an issue. It should be considerably more to teach someone how to run a CNC milling machine but I can take anyone even if its thier first job and they are a grade school drop out; and teach them how to operate a CNC and usually files will work across all machines no problem, might have to make a few tweaks here and there if the file came from a Haas but thats about it.
      Yet 3D printing requires a lot more thought...
      Dont even get me going about multimaterial heads 😅. That should just be the defacto standard so you can have prints that you just dunk in water when done and have them done.

      @@AnonymousAnarchist2 CNC milling and 3d printing are basically in the same state right now, as far as entry level learning is concerned.
      But (7ish?) years ago, everyone expected 3d printing to be a one button push kinda thing. No one has ever expected CNC operation to be that, because it seems complicated to the lay person, and it definitely is.
      If you could solve making CNC operations (subtractive manufacturing) easy, you'd be just as successful as the person who makes 3d printing easy.

      My mom just got me a 3D Printer for Christmas. She was _so_ proud that she was able to do it, and in fact she had originally ordered the cheapest $125 model from the manufacturer but got an email from them a few weeks earlier informing her that they were out of stock, but by that point it was just a week away from Christmas. So my mom replied to them that now it was too late to find another gift, and to compensate they sent their _$300 model_ for the same price, and even threw in a kilogram spool of filament.
      So now I have a really awesome 3D Printer that I have _no clue what to actually do with._ But mom mom was _so_ proud that she could get it for me, so I'm going to have to try something, and I have seen some absolutely rad BattleMech miniatures and figures on Etsy that people have created themselves, and maybe I can find some of the 3D models that they used to print them. Or try to design my own D&D miniatures, even though my gaming group has never used minis to play in our 30+ years (and we have no desire to do so.)

    I think more accessibility to others emotions will instead make hate harder to spread as it's easier to be inoculated against it.
    Nowadays, we have to put in effort still to empathize with people we may disagree with. Especially when those people make it more difficult for the people around them. However, this will lead to further polarization in the people who still manage to not take advantage of the new medium for understanding others. Much like it occurs today...

      I don't wish to belittle or insult anyone's way of life. I could, but I think it's more productive to provide a better way that's still appealing to those who have hate in their hearts. In the meantime I hope you get appropriate pushback so your ways do not get encouraged.
      However this rehabilitative way of thinking seems more harmful than good in cases where the person holds power. As they have many ways to harm others, as well as ability to avoid the problem.

    Regarding transportation i.e. flying cars et al.

    An EUC is almost like a jet pack in terms of feel and definitely has greater range.

  • @08wolfeyes
    @08wolfeyes Před 6 dny

    Something I feel is often forgotten when it comes to the subject of predicting the future is that the future is also often based on and expanded upon the past.
    Take for example the idea of flying or self driving cars, these were things people imagined might happen in the future.
    Some people might then say, those people did really well in predicting that as here we are now on a world where such things are being thought out and built.
    What we also need to remember, however, is that people from today have maybe looked back into the past for inspiration or ideas and come across those predictions or even seen them in a sci-fi movie or perhaps read them in some novel and thought, that's an interesting idea, I wonder if we might be able yo do that with the technology we have today.
    So you see, while the past may predict some things, it is, in a way, a self-fulfilling prophecy!

    2:00 On this point, another thing that people don't realise is relatively recent is the very _idea_ of absolute time, in the sense of years.
    Historically, in most cultures, people commonly reckoned years with reference to the current ruler, or something like the chinese zodiac, which is cyclical. So you might see 'in the fifth year of king/emperor blah blah' or 'in the year of Yin Water Rooster'. A small number of educated elite might have had cause to use Anno Domini or to piece together how many years it had been since the Yellow Emperor reigned, but the primary reference frame of time was very contemporary, within the memories of living people.
    When you think about it, this fundamentally constrains the ability of people to conceive of the distant past or future. When saying '1500 AD' or '2500 AD ' feels unfamiliar, and instead you think in terms of 'in the fifth year of a monarch who lived hundreds of years ago who I don't know much about' or 'during the hypothetical reign of the current kings great x20 grandson, assuming we aren't conquered or experience dynastic change'. It's much harder keep a consistent sense of chronology in your head, which in turn obscures the view of bigger-picture history, especially when there is relatively slow technological and societal change.

      One of the big things related to time is that there have been massive periods, hundreds to thousands of years and longer, where people didn't expect things to ever been different, because things stayed much the same for generation after generation.

      What kind of question is that, it would be like it always is.

    Hey Joe, I really liked the question in about 12 minutes in the video: "What did people do before they were able to look up an answer to a question. And did they just accept not knowing ?". I believe there are generally 2 groups of people. Maybe 70% - who would just accept not knowing. And like 30% who would try to find the answer. So I would like to share 2 ways of doing it. My favorite way was , asking people. First I would ask my parents, than i would double-check with my teachers in school. And lastly 9 in future I would listen to people's conversations to mention somebody being an expert on a subject and I will triple-check my question with the expert. It is a very easy way to actually remember an answer - when you had 3 conversations about it. Another way was given to my by my father : to go to the library. I was never good with that, i would usually go to the fiction department of the library and get distracted. It will be fun to make a special video on more ways to solve the problem. I believe most of your viewers are in the "curious" 30%.

      That sounds about right. Information was harder to come by back then but it also felt more rewarding to figure something I was wondering about.
      But in a way, information can be hard today too since you easily can get the opposite information from 2 different sources so I think getting something wrong is easier now while admitting you just didn't know something was easier back then.
      Then again, today you usually have someone fact checking people if you are a few discussing something (even though their fact checking also might be wrong).
      Today, you really have to check the sources really carefully.

      Effort makes knowledge more personal and you are more likely to remember it (compensation for sunken cost). Fast internet has made that part too easy. Google as substitution for memory.
      "Library skills" still have use at ouside of libraries. You need to tickle search engines with right words, Jump to reference lists head first and dig deep to link-trees.

      People can get information when they look up from their devices and see what’s going on in front them, If they’re stuck inside maybe they can look outside. Obviously everyone sees things differently, so there may never be a consensus on what’s actually happening, and so I think it’s best to understand that nobody can know everything, but we might get a clearer picture that works for us. I’m constantly trying to filter out, useless information such as infotainment, advertorial and uninformed commentary.
