Just as an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs and made way for small, furry mammals, a new wave of planetary disruptions is about to occur. The new asteroid is called "exponential technology." It is going to wipe out industries in a similar manner to the rock that fell to Earth during the Cretaceous. That is the premise of a new book by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler.
Imagine a fleet of drones, overhead, out of sight, tens of thousands of feet in the sky. Imagine those drones being powered by sunlight -- effectively aerial satellites that are orbiting constantly, never having to touch down for fuel. Now imagine thousands of them with cameras and radio repeaters on board.
