Another Example Of The Speed of Software Based Innovation

If you are a teacher, something to keep in mind as you wait for classes to pick up again in the fall, is the speed of innovation when it’s based online.

For example, let’s say you have an older digital video camera without image stabilization. I have one of these and stopped using it once I got my phone which has it. Anyway, Instagram has now released the ability to upload videos. The twist is, you can also use a software service on their site called Cinema, which will do image stabilization when you upload. All of a sudden, all sorts of older technology has a new lease on life.

Literally, every older camera got an upgrade, for free, overnight.

This sort of technological progress will happen more and more, and faster and faster as time goes on. What will teachers have to deal with by September? Three months is plenty of time for a revolution.
