Learning today

I’m at the Cusp conference today. Learning about how we’ll have a trillion devices all talking to each other one day (and how a trillion seconds ago was 30,000 years ago), about how one pair of jeans requires 1400 gallons of water to produce, about how evolution favors flexibility and redundancy, how we’ve only added 7 years to the US life expectancy between 1960 and 2010 but added 30 years between 1880 and 1960, how we get 90 percent of our calories from just 30 crops, and how it’s possible to misjudge how far that mountain is — confusing a clear view with a short distance.
