Analog Ostrich

7 06 2008

I had an interesting conversation with someone recently who I’ll refer to as Mr. Analog Ostrich.  In fact, at the mention of anything digital you would see this person quickly assume this position — 

I seriously thought for a minute that I was in a Twilight Zone episode.  Instead of thinking through solutions, methods, and opportunities the digital age brings…Mr. Ostrich was buried so far into the sand I couldn’t hardly make sense out of the conversation.

Either we are adapting or held prisoner to antiquated methods.  Either we are growing or standing still…which will eventually leave you dead.  With every negative from disruptive digital technologies comes 5 positives that must be embraced.  I suspect Mr. Ostrich will be working at the Home Depot in a few years, I’m thinking the home and garden section where digital is not to prominent….unless they need to check someone out!
