Headline Haiku: The Future Belongs To…

the future belongs 2s

This new ground:  where are
the paths for technology
itself and how now?

Once again, a ubiquitous ad campaign, this one by Hewlett-Packard, caught my eye and got me thinking.  This page, from “Bits”, a technology section of the NY Times, announced that “the future belongs to the fast”.

Obviously, they’ve never read Aesop.

What do I want in MY future?  More technology or more trees?

future tree s

Trees grow slowly, adapting themselves to their surroundings.  They need a healthy environment to thrive.  They are in it for the long term, and the nourishment they give back from what they take in provides life for generations to come.

Technology does not consider or care about context.  Corporations are profit-making machines.  They want the most they can get right now.  The court says they are people:  “people” who are greedy, rude, inconsiderate, self-centered, and without morals or integrity, I’d say.  (Or was that politicians?…)  But I digress.

how now s

Should we be gifting our future to “the fast”?  Or should we be planting trees and saving the web of life that is our home?

Just asking.

Once again, the words for the haiku came from headlines in the newspaper section where the ad appeared.  Arrangement by me. Advertisement by Hewlett-Packard and the NY Times.  Stitched tree over ad by me.  And you can see my past Headline Haiku here:  https://methodtwomadness.wordpress.com/?s=headline+haiku

    Love this! And you’ve put your finger on what’s wrong, I think. There’s a reason for Ayn Rand’s resurgence. Didn’t you hear we’re all supposed to be selfish bastards? Corps and humans alike! Damn the trees, real food, etc. let them eat (GMO) cake!
