    What is this guy talking about?

    Half his points amount to "Increasing complexity is bad" which is, by its very nature, wrong.

    The other half of the point he keeps talking about if there is some serious disruption to widespread knowledge, something that would require a hell of a bigger disruption than global warming. You're talking nuclear winter or an asteroid impact levels of disruption to block out global networks, and at that point, you've got something bigger than a technological dark age.

    He uses a migration crisis, global warming, and trade wars, to imply that it would be enough to wipe out communications and storage infrastructure, and their hundreds of redundancies.

    Technology depend on basic sciences. If physicists can not find anything thing new, engineering can only use old stuff again and again….

    Great technological advances are wondrous no doubt. I believe in 1859 we suffered a extreme solar storm. Telegraph rendered almost useless. What if the same storm happened today. Cannot even imagine the outcome.

    Your into is pretty factually wrong. Nobody had internet on their phone until the iderp came along. And like any new radical concept most had negative responses to the idea. Most of those people now use a smartphone all day but don't ever use them for anything useful.

    It’s extremely disturbing how much damage Chump has done to the western alliance in just two years. Also the balance of power has been shifting & China particularly has been increasing in power, especially as they are focusing on renewable energy & related technologies, while the US & OPEC nations are trying to prolong the life of fossil fuel use.

    For what it's worth not just next meal, but just something nice about pulling away from my 99 dood-dads, and taking simple stroll, or sinking my teeth into creature compforts and needs that feed hearth and home.

    6:40 the cloud is indeed very fragile. yesterday firefox teased at that. Basically the signing system for it failed for at least 4-5 hours. Meening that all kinds of stuff stopped working from backup systems that use it's DOM to mondane plugins. The fact is the cloud just not as stable as some want us to believe. Their's also the giant mess of the NODE world, how many different bits and pieces to build things do we need or want? I have some health issues that from time to time just make it a bad idea to drive. This is particularly bad when I need to get to a doctors office. Speaking from experience: booking uber with a fragile app is a PITA . Having a watch that requires internet service to even tell time is weird, cool, but weird. etc.

    Well I have never really disagreed with anything you have said until you called solar primitive. It kinda feels that you chose that word placement quite carefully to fulfil your narrative. That being said I agree with the rest

    is unpopular is this statement is Puerto Rico is a third world country when Florida gets hit by a hurricane or out of power for four days at the most often time sooner than that and other states like New York deal with flooding and power outages from hurricanes because they don't regularly get hit by them so they don't regularly train in post catastrophe rehabilitation

    I do know that PC technology is rather stale compared to cell phones or I guess what you would call mobile technology.

    Very good video.
    I wonder if there is a subfield of economics on technological and resource dependence.
