“What hath God wrought” – The Digital Society in the next 30 years

“What hath God wrought” was the first public American Morse code message sent in 1844, from Baltimore to Washington D.C..  (read about Samuel Morse)

This message was under 140 characters in length.  Was it the first “tweet”, so to say?

To ascribe the invention of the Telegraph to “God” and not to man is significant.

Like the invention (or discovery?) of Radio we now live in an age where we can project our thoughts and things that matter out across space and time… and this changes everything from what has come before.

If “God” gave us these tools for global communication then what will “we” do with them?
If we don’t have a plan, then where will these tools take us?
Do we leave our destination to chance or do we plot a course?

This is the lead in to an interesting talk by John Battelle.  Website – http://battellemedia.com/

Get a cup of coffee and watch this 20 min talk (and shameless plug for a book)
