[Not as much from another planet as from half a century ago]
Yes we’re back with this; here’s the September edition of my Wired / Tired / Expired jargon watch overviews, a mixed bag; see what you missed this Summer:
|The latest wave is about humanity again, fortunately, as the first signals of a massive increase of human vs. machine intelligence and capabilities, precursors of a societal debate on the singularity or the parts of its checkered implementation (timeline) hopefully, come out into the open. Via the predicted AI integration bubbling up everywhere.||All aboard the night train. It keeps on running, and so are some. But not necessarily you. It’s just that the whole thing has become too diffuse to still get a grip on. So media attention has been lost. Not totalitarian’s attention – civil rights movementers (movers?) watch out.||If you think this is still hot, or even hype, you belong in the Museum of Ancient History|
|Note-taking in paper notebooks||Note-taking on tablets||Note-taking on laptops|
|Yes, moving beyond the sect of St. Steve …! As per the above, the Slow Living idea, as elaborated into the co-operation/-everything environments of organizational life, is spreading. For the good of mankind. Also, this, and #4 of this.||A fool with a tool is still a tool. You Late Majority! And, it’s going this way. Hopefully.||Hm, valid, for professional note-takers. Not for the casual meeting browsers, though.|
|Instant hyper-amateur ‘shops||Memes||GIFs (-as-Jifs),
|0,15 seconds of fame. Expressing the idea, permanence not as much. Which is efficient and (hence?) laudable in its own way.||I don’t often need to explain, but if I do … Memes may have been a full product (sic) cycle that many may have missed completely.||Who has time for those? To make, to take.|
|Don’t care||Dissing ‘mainstream’||Digging Hip
|Just be yourself. Ensure that’s enough. For you.||Having become mainstream, it’s a Tu Quoque (jokes on yourself) now.||Ehhh, you were backpacking for half a year in an area without WiFi or something..!?!? How could you do that, and not recover in half a day?|
|Deca. Or reading classical, well-bound hardcover books.||PDF reading||Kindle et al.|
|As in this.
And, the ultimate long-form, reading classics of all ages as treasured elements of Culture. The humanity and its wisdom that transpires through the centuries.
|For the operational content. Nothing else.||Nice try, but on its way to the great heap of just-didn’t-make-it-to-be-great-inventions.|
|Deal with it||Dogue||What Happen|
|In the Why Should I Care What Your Problems Are They Won’t Go Away If Not When I Would||Much annoy.||Moved into this sector.|
|Modern tech moving into business||3D printing for gadgetry||IoT promises|
|As in: Apple joining forces with IBM, Microsoft re-invigorating its business offerings, et al.||As in this fad(s); sad. Spoils the idea instead of pushing widespread household use||Sort of the same hypepromises not being delivered by far while we would still wanted to have it all happen(ed).|
|NASA’s UFO||Amazon drone delivery||Attack of the Drones|
|Woot! We humans are finally making it happen ourselves …!?||Maybe it will happen. Maybe not. What increase in service ..?||Now that it’s a fact; have we learned how to deal with it …? (I mean, in a way that would let us stay comfortable even if brought home ubiquitously?)|
OK, any suggestions for next month’s edition ..?
