In the future, we will have a world populated with an incredible
network of connected devices. Many of those devices will contain
important knowledge. Knowledge that people need in order to improve

Lazy people will fail to tap these resources and will, as a
consequence, always wonder why success is always out of reach and is
always someone else's fault.

Paul Wilson, welcome to the future.
