Scott has always had a deeply ingrained feeling that our period in history is a very special one, and that our generation is destined to experience incredible events that previous generations couldn’t have imagined. Part of this comes from watching too much science fiction while growing up, but it is also based upon the observation that technological advancement has been increasing at an exponential rate. Scott believes that we are now at the take-off point in this high speed technology curve and that most people alive today are going to witness profound changes in the very near future.
