Technology never seems to slow down. It seems like yesterday when we thought 400Mhz was very fast. I remember my first computer: 450Mhz, 64MB of RAM, 4MB graphics card, 16x CD-ROM drive—man that was fast. Then came the 3D games (and Office 2000!) and alas my baby wasn’t fast enough. Today I am not even sure if that PC exists in one piece.
These days, we are talking about GHz, DDR, Gbps, and the works. But does it end here? We all know it doesn’t. Every day someone seems to come up with need for more—it could be bandwidth, or graphic capability, or anything (I’m not even sure I know).
Innovation is the key. We can’t get tied down to what was yesterday. It will pass away and we will be left all alone. Today, people are (I can’t say, slowly) moving to web-based applications. Tomorrow, who knows what. Without innovation, any individual, team, or company will fade away. If the old adage said “survival of the fittest,” I guess the fittest, today, is the one who innovates most.
