Re: No Fiber Optic Cables?
@David, it definitely is an amazing realization to uncover an interconnected pattern and process that builds upon another process. For instance, electricity distribution to every home enabled the radio and television, enabling one-way communication to homes, which transformed into the telephone that created two-way communication. Next came, the internet, followed by cloud resources, etc.
I completely agree 100%, a single pain point could go either way and it is fun to ponder upon hypothetical situations. For instance, if the telephone was not invented then, in one parallel universe there might be some other invention that bridged the gap from electricity to the internet while, in another parallel universe, not inventing the telephone would have resulted in no internet and a grid-lock.
