Josh on Modern Day File Storage


From Josh:

Where you save the file won’t matter. What you name the file won’t matter. The file type won’t matter. When you last saved the file won’t matter.

What will matter is your ability to use keywords to search for contents in the file. What will matter is your ability to use artificial intelligence to find the file, summarize or modify the file, and share the file. All in under 15 seconds.

As he surmizes later in the article, for many this future is here. A generation that grew up with Google is forcing professors to rethink their lesson plans. Part of me thinks this is a bad thing, but it’s also possible I’m the old man yelling at a cloud in this scenario.
