Well it's 2020 folks! Such a cool number.
This is a great time to reflect on the past, and plan for the future.
Here are just some of my disjointed thoughts on what's coming up. None of these are hardcore predictions you should follow, it's just some fun brainstorming to get my writing fingers warmed up for 2020!
New ways of spreading information or services:
As technology moves forward there are more and more ways to transmit information. Here's a short list:
Methods of spreading information or services:
Imagine you wanted to teach something to the internet, the primary method to do this has changed. In 1990 it would be soooo cool if you put a free text file with how to play the guitar. In 2020 you would probably put out a series of videos to teach guitar, create a piece of software or app that helps you learn, and then promote those on social media:
Amount of effort to create vs output (1-5 Scale):
Here's a rough estimation of how much effort (in my experience) it takes to create something, versus how much output or return you get from it:

Technology will continue to expand the reach of individual writers or creators:
I'm not a fan of the theory that computers will replace writers. Instead it will vastly increase the reach of writers who utilize technology rather than shun it.
For example in the 1920's your "Circle of Opportunity" as a writer would be limited to people in your geographic area that your words could physically be delivered to, like in a newspaper:
You were limited to a small "Circle of Opportunity" back then.
But thanks to the internet and all this new technology, a writer can now reach a potentially MASSIVE audience with those same words.
Those same words can now reach everyone thanks to technology.
Most likely the evolution of technology will keep pushing forward...
...until information is just installed in our heads:
The closer you can make your product to that scene in The Matrix where they need to learn to fly a helicopter, and the computer just uploads it to Trinity's brain, the better.
We are quite a while away from that, so in the meantime a combination of all formats is good.

Plan for 2020:
To be completely honest I don't have any specific year-long goals for 2020. I am generally a good keeper of monthly goals (like my last several years of monthly goals listed on my personal blog), and every month I make my monthly goals and stick them on a wall or mirror.
For now the only goals I have for 2020 are:
- This year I would like to be able to sight-read sheet piano music.
- Instead of texting friends to work together when needed, to pre-schedule work sessions (I get far more work done when on a video call or working with others).
Anywhoozle, welcome to 2020, and I look forward to talking to you more :-)
