  1. The narrative that we've been under the most profound change ever is broken. My grandfather saw more fundamental technological and social changes than we've seen in the last 50 years. He sailed from England to Canada as a child - basically an indentured servant sold as an orphan (although his parents were alive and well, but couldn't justify the cost of raising another child). He saw the start of powered flight, commercial transatlantic flights, moon landings, satellites, probes sent to other planets. Also, morse code to daily mail delivery to teletype to computers to 100 channels with nothing on. (he died in 1980, so missed the internet revolution). Toefler was right about future shock, but was wrong that we are the only people to have experienced it.
