  • Technology has, is and will affect your life and the enterprises you depend upon. My Grandfather, on my mother’s side, lived in Galveston, Texas. In his youth, after the great storm of 1900, built water cisterns. It was a highly skilled and specialized trade essential to residents of the island as a central water system did not exist. Wells couldn't be dug on the island. When wells were established on the mainland and a pipeline laid to the island, the need for his skill went away, as did his business. He went into railroads and became an engineer for the Santa Fe. It was a thriving business that enabled him to work productively throughout his life. My father also went into the railroad business. He worked for the Pullman Company. They made and maintained sleeper cars for the passenger trains. To ride on a Pullman was to go first class. Quality and service was the best. And, travel via Pullman cars was most expensive and comfortable. When air travel flourished, the need for sleeping cars was the first casualty in the railroad business. He got laid off at midlife and never really fully recovered from the loss. I was determined not to have the same fate. I went to college and graduate school, studied solid state physics. From there I went to work for IBM in the fledgling semiconductor business. I was fortunate enough to ride the technology/business cycle through most of my career, but then in midlife, found IBM unable to change with the shifting sands of technology.
