I feel so fortunate to be alive during this time of change. Technology has opened up new ideas and frontiers. But I find like many of you in this discussion, it can be daunting. The pace of change is accelerating. Forget about staying ahead of it, just not being left behind requires constant attention. So I approach technology with both excitement for the new opportunities, and "not another darn thing" for the constant time it requires. But now more than ever for those of us who work in organizations where one's "value" is constantly under the microscope, adaption to technology and the new world that it has ushered in is one that we must embrace. Or we risk going the way of the dinosaurs...
