There was a lot of good class discussion on Tuesday about the emerging technologies coming into the workplace and our homes. The base discussion about virtualization, soa, and gridcomputing was great, but what really got my mind working was the technology of having the sensors on our proteins. This way of monitoring personal health and obtaining information about your body is so real, yet seems so out there. When you think of the size of a protein and how could you attach something to it that would be able to do some much seems so unbelievable. This type of work that scientists are doing today is crazy. Also, when talking about other technologies, such as the glasses that double as a monitor and can broadcast directly into a person's retina. What makes this so astounding to me is that, while I think of myself of a relatively sauvvy individual when it comes to what is new and upcoming. When in reality I don't have a clue. It is a good wake up for me to realize that I need to do a little more research and get with the times. Also, as sad as it sounds, going out to find the newest technology is interesting, but until it is in the market and ready for use, its not that appealing to me. So when we talk about it in class, it is awesome to learn about and sort of changes my thinking of, hey I should really get into this. This is what is going to keep me ahead of the time (somewhat) and would give me an advantage to be innovative. This is something that can make me special in my future workplace.
