Parallelism in our future, separating reality from bias
Last week, I blogged about our bias in how we predict the future.
It has caused me to think, and talk to others - about parallelism.
I pointed out that we tend to embrace "out with the old, in with the new."
So, do we tend toward "out with the serial, in with the parallel." Well, I think many people do think that way. End the end - the point of survey results is the same: we act differently than our impulses.
Our actions tend to favor things that more provably benefit us.
Parallel is the same - we'll see MORE adoption than we expect where it helps, and LESS where it does not.
So - where does it help the most? The answers so far are a bit surprising, and I should write them up later. I'm interested in comments on what people are seeing work well... and otherwise... with parallelism.
