if you have a few mins break then you may want to spend some time watching the following video which contains some interesting facts about population and technology in general. There is also a mention of Japan Telecom (NTT) in there too which I cover in todays Japan Optic Fiber Internet article.
Looks like in just a few decades, mankind will end (the matrix) ^^;

Original text from tintin-san below.

My lecturer for Computing and Society showed this video in class the other day.
It's about the exponential growth of technology and how it will affect us in the future.

I thought it was highly insightful, though-provoking and entertaining so sharing it here.
Do watch it ^^;

Shift Happens. Did You Know? Version 3.0

My favourite:
For students starting a 4 year technical degree, this means that...
half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.
--> I didn't do well for my first semester ^^;

Otherwise, all the other facts were equally stunning and awe-inspiring.
