Do you ever heard “past is new future” ? maybe yes maybe no. But somehow I realize since few years back the saying is true. As a human, we expect to get new experience, but not all of us are imaginary person like Rowling or other fictional series author, hence we need reference to build new experience. And the best reference is actually our own history. Thus, technically our new idea to build the new future is most likely an adjustment fro what we have on the past, or even worst identically same with the past but with new price hehehe.
When first time I know cell phone, it was big and heavy. For some year after, prestige of cell phone could be seen from it’s size, smaller the phone, the more prestige owner would have. But after a decade, luxury come when phone size was big, remember Nokia 9 series anyone ? the first black and white smart phone.
After that era, again cell phone back to smaller and smaller. It is time when first camera technology and colorful screen embedded into cell phone.
When BlackBerry ruled the world with their communication strategy. The need of QWERTY keyboard arised. Big cell phone with QWERTY keyboard become new standard of prestige. And with new innovation on screen technology, cell phone again have new demand to be on larger dimension.
What happened to cell phone is just an example about how past is our new future. There are many other we can use as case study of this hypothesis. Automotive industry, music, fashion design and many more.
So how is your past ? and which one will be your new future
