What is the question that I should be asking?

2019 week 35

Jolting Technologies

There is a paradigm shift moving from accelerating technological change to jolting technological change.


There is a paradigm shift moving from accelerating technological change to jolting technological change.

What is a jolt? The jolt is the measure of the rate of change of acceleration.

Imagine a rocket. The engines are at full power, and the rocket brings on board both its propellant and its oxidant. As they chemically combine and the rocket expels them to achieve its thrust, its mass will diminish and the diminishing mass will lead to an increasing acceleration during the ascent.

There are technologies today that are not only merely accelerating at an exponential rate. Their acceleration is increasing, they are superexponential, they are jolting.

We have to get ready for their world changing power!
