Alright, folks, let’s take a little jaunt down memory lane. Picture this: it’s 2010, and I’m rocking a flip phone, making plans on the fly, texting with actual buttons, and feeling like I’m on top of the world. Ah, the nostalgia.
Fast forward to today, and I feel like I’ve been flung headfirst into an episode of The Jetsons. I mean, seriously, did our tech just slurp down a can of spinach and go full Popeye on us?
Now, remember when we used to discuss the “distant” future, where robots might take our jobs, and AI would be making our coffee? It seemed so sci-fi, didn’t it? I even penned down my thoughts back in the day, talking about this 'future'.
But here’s the kicker: this future didn’t just knock on our doors - it kicked them down like it was late to its own party! And let’s be honest, it’s giving folks the heebie-jeebies.
“Wait, what?! My job could be done by a robot?” “You’re telling me this algorithm can write better than me?” The watercooler chat has taken on a decidedly dystopian flavor.
