Why do we see this strange mix of selling the future and the past? Well, not every company has the same pressures and drivers, so consequently they can be at a different stage of technology transformation. Cloud natives and the growing ranks of "cloud immigrants" (those not born using the cloud but who fully embrace it) live in the 2020s. At the same time, some organizations are moving to enter the 1990s or perhaps 2000s, at least as far as IT security spending goes. People are buying their first SIEM or upgrading to a next-gen firewall, as well as trying to secure cloud-native and cloud-migrated applications and workloads. Different industry sectors have different dynamics, and this is reflected in their architectures and operations.
Patrick BernatchezLost in Time (2008-2015), a multimedia installation in photography, sculpture, and video that imagines multiple dimensions of time as a faceless horse and rider travel adrift in a post-apocalyptic future landscape of ice and snow, quite literally lost in time and space.
Endothelial injury during shock may lead to ACE defects, which in turn may cause an increase in vasodilatory mediators that are normally metabolized by ACE and a relative or absolute decrease in ANG-2. These pathophysiological derangements may be beneficially affected by ANG-2 infusion. This mechanism of action in shock justifies further investigation of ACE activity, bradykinin levels, and ANG 1-7 levels in vasodilatory shock and may be an important target for future therapeutic intervention.
In her sixth and most controversial novel, Miss Atwood goes a step further. She describes the world that she imagines our present world could lead to. Out of the threads of current headlines she has woven a garment that is part political tract, part suspense thriller, part cautionary tale. Call it future shock, feminist-style. ``The Handmaid's Tale'' chillingly projects a repressive new social order where women are stripped of all identity and exist ``for breeding purposes'' only.
Some details of Atwood's bizarre anti-Utopia are at least as repellent as those in such forerunners as Aldous Huxley's ``Brave New World'' in 1932 and George Orwell's ``1984'' 16 years later. Those two novels have come to be seen as fiercely moral tracts that jarred their readers to awaken them. Will Atwood, as different from Huxley and Orwell as they were from each other, join them in the accepted ranks of those disguised idealists who image the future as a nightmare in order that it may remain just that -- a fantasy? Certainly the early reviews of her book have been mainly positive.
The time is the near future, the place is the Republic of Gilead -- formerly known as the United States. A coup d''etat by religious fundamentalists has left the President and Congress dead, the Constitution suspended, and borders sealed. Rulers of the new theocracy, seeking to repair the damages wrought by a society ``dying of too much choice,'' now specialize in public executions and private humiliations.
Not too long ago we were imagining a world with hoverboards, robot butlers, and flying cars. We were looking forward to the idea of having access to information at any given time. To 0s and 1s, to cyborg intergration, to 3D printing of human organs? Even globalization seemed to be a rather promising concept to a certain degree. So when did the future switch from being a promise to a threat?
One of the biggest challenges of future shock is the confrontation to our psyches. Toffler explained what happens to us when we reach the upper levels of our adaptive range. We become fatigued, apathetic, suffer from emotional exhaustion, feel overwhelmed and succumb to decision-stress. With decision-stress, we default to habitual, mechanical behavior. We make bad decisions, or we readily hand our decisions over. to someone else.
Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life--or so she thinks. When powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life.Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong and they break the only rule they were given: do not look into their own fates.Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her eidetic memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends and herself.
Fifty years after its publication, Future Shock is a testament to the potential for prescience. It is not possible to consistently and accurately predict the future. Indeed Toffler, not to mention thousands of other bold prognosticators over the decades, did get some predictions very wrong. However his insights on the likely path forward for humanity have amply withstood the cruel test of time, providing a sense of the shape of the future that has turned out to anticipate many aspects of the world that we live in today.
The concept of future shock may have been new when Toffler coined the term. However we can be sure we will never reach a time when we move past that to a time when we have a collective sense of continuity and stability. And I believe we will never be so fazed by change that we are unable to respond to it as individuals.
In the Paris of 1978, old formulas do not charm listeners anymore and new music must arise. In a male-dominated industry, Ana uses her electronic gadgets to make herself heard, creating a new sound that will mark the decades to come: the music of the future.
