My hopes for wearable technology is that it evolves to assist our human evolution, not handicap it. I don't want to see our blood types poisoned by inserting chips unnecessarily into the crevices of our body, but I do want wearable technology to create longer lifetimes, invent eco-friendly homes, and above all, sustain the planet and humanity.
One of our greatest concerns today is how technology will alter our lives in the decades to come. Part of the Science & Democracy lecture series at Harvard, Peter Thiel, co-founder of Paypal and Palantir, offered new ways to propel the masses forward during this revolution of information technology.
Thiel's concept of the definite optimist. It is not enough to be an optimist. You need to think about the future in a definite manner. That does not mean that everything you plan will work out. It is easier said than done. But being a definite optimist is the first step to be in control of your destiny.
