Valin Posted March 19, 2012 Share Posted March 19, 2012 I'm sure TTR's know of my love (obsession) of history. This is going to be an ongoing series of videos and articles purposing the idea that we are at one of these points. I would hope others here partake in this, or at a minimum allow this view to influence your views on politics and culture. I would also add, not being a man of the written word, I have not (yet) been able to put this into so many words. Where did this start? Forward to 7: 45 "I believe we are living on the hinge of history, on the cusp of history. And it's, it happens no more frequently than every hundred years, sometimes every five hundred years, and we are so in the middle of this symbolically new century, new millennium, really new economic age, information versus industry or machines, and a new, a new order in the world uh, to pla...replace the old cold war order." (Aside: ) Three more Vids I found today You're gonna be shocked...it's Newt. For purposes of this thread I am not pushing Gingrich, I use him only to point out what kind of change we have experienced so far, and where we could be going This talk was part of ISU class called, "Technology, Globalization, and Culture (ME/WLC 484/584)". During the course of the semester student learning will be facilitated through a variety of interactions, including: presentations by leading professionals from business, industry, cultural institutions, and academia who confront the challenges of globalization in both theory and practice, readings and research on global issues, threaded discussions on a thematic focus (weekly), critical analysis of presentations and readings, and student project teams which will identify, research, develop, and present a course project. Now Andrew Breitbart 2005. In listening to this, I ask you not think of the politics of hollywood. That is not why I am using this, instead think of how the technological changes that are happening will affect the entertainment (and sports which is entertainment) industry. My grandmother was born in 1865 died in 1958. When she was born the way most people lived had not changed in any fundamental way in 300-400(?) years, when she died the changes had started. Since then, for better or worse the world she knew is a thing of the far distant past. 30 years ago (say) nickydog and I could not have had the conversations we have had She being in Co. and I in Mn., the technology while it existed, was just new born, today it has changed...well everything. 30 years ago if you were a person who was really into politics you subscribed to Newsweek or Time or if you really had no life US News and World Report. On the Left The Nation, The Village Voice, on the right National Review, Human Events, today, the sources available to us the great unwashed are greater than The MSM had in 1982. Enough of my rambling. I hope this is of some use Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
