Camera Phones and Surviving the Next 10 Years In Tech

Can you even remember what life was like just 10 years ago?

2006.

I barely can. The first iPhone wouldn’t be launched for another year. We were all walking around oohing and aahing at the RAZR because it had a camera on it… or wearing our thumbs raw scrolling on our BlackBerry’s.

No Node. No Bootstrap.

It’d be another four years before Ethan Marcotte penned his web-altering “Responsive Web Design” on A List Apart.

PHP 4 was still the norm.

Just 10 years ago!

I believe that those of us alive for all this drastically under-estimate what is happening and just how rapidly things are changing. And, if you’re not careful… as someone IN the technology industry… you can get swept away.

I was still just a wee code pup back then.

And, I got washed off the landscape by the “Web 2.0” movement. I lost my entire web design business… all the late nights and gray hair… because I didn’t pay attention to what was happening.

And, that was just a minor blip compared to the seismic shifts that are coming.

Think about this…

Think back to everything that has changed in the last 10 years… now imagine everything that is GOING to change in the next 10. And consider that technology tends to advance exponentially.

So, the next 10 years will advance faster than the last 10.

(And you don’t have time to mess around.)

I don’t think any of us can really know what things are going to look like 10 years from now. But, I do know that it represents massive opportunity for those that keep their head up, pay attention and adapt.

And, for those that get serious and invest in their career (time AND money) now.

I think we will see a lot of separation in the next 10 years… between those who “wannabe” but aren’t willing to put in the time and effort… and those who get serious and do whatever it takes to make this their career.

Make sure you’re on the right side.
