Shift Happens - Globalization and the Information Age (Video)

In today's wired world, the speed at which information grows and propagates goes way beyond what our human brain can visualize. Did you know that right now, the amount of global technical knowledge is doubling every 2 years and that by 2010, it is predicted to double every 72 hours? That most of the information that a 1st year university student learns today will be completely outdated before he finishes school?

The following video, Shift Happens - Globalization and The Information Age, was originally created by Karl Fisch, and later modified by Scott McLeod. It tries to illuminate us as what living on earth in 10 or 20 years will be like.

If everything they say in this presentation becomes reality, what will be the implications for humanity? What are your thoughts on this?
