“It’s not a horse.” “It doesn’t have a steam engine.” “We’re gonna need to build new smoother roads for them.”
These were the words people used to describe the car when it was first invented. The same is being said about mobile. We talk about the technologies inside these machines and infrastructure. But fundamentally internet + mobile will have profound implications.
Mobile will completely and fundamentally change how we live as human beings.
“Mobile will do to our society what the car did. The car completely changed how we lived. Suburbia did not exist before the car was invented. It totally changed the dynamics of neighborhoods and how people interacted with each other. It completed changed the economics of buying and selling. Because suddenly people could build big warehouses at the edge of town and pact them with stuff. People could drive there and buy stuff for cheap.”
