I came across two cool articles yesterday that discuss how technology is expected to further transform our lives in the next few years. The first article is from NPR and focuses on Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Paul Salopek’s plan to walk the route scientists believe our human ancestors took thousands of years ago when they walked out of Africa and migrated northward and eastward. Salopek believes he’ll gain a view into how technology is transforming people lives and connecting them on a global level. And the second article, from the New York Times, features an interview with Ben Horowitz the co-founder of the Silicon Valley capital venture firm Andreessen Horowitz who shares a bit of tech insider insight into how he believes technology, in this case software, is transforming the lives of people around the world.

Here is the link to the NPR Paul Salopek article titled What Do You Pack For A Seven-Year Trip?
