A lot of tech companies are trying to figure out how to survive in the era of the massive rise in mobile devices, the rise of artificial intelligence, and the rapid pace of innovation.
The big question is whether we can find ways to keep up with all these new things and compete effectively with them.
Recode senior editor Josh Constine wrote in a recent interview that he’s not sure how to “keep up” with all of the new technology.
He thinks it’s important to get a handle on what’s happening to the tech market and how we can be as focused as possible.
That’s not easy, he says.
It’s not like we’re living in a golden age where everyone has everything they need.
There are plenty of challenges.
There’s no guarantee you’ll get to the moon, or have the perfect health care plan.
But, in the case of tech, there’s no such thing as a sure thing.
And there’s plenty of room for people to screw up.
We’re not sitting on our backsides in this market.
There have been many times where we’ve said, We need to do something different, and we’ve been unable to get there.
That can happen.
Sometimes, it’s a slow, steady process.
Sometimes it’s sudden, disruptive change.
Sometimes you just get caught up in a panic.
Sometimes things are going wrong in ways you couldn’t anticipate.
And sometimes, it just seems like there’s so much to learn.
