INTERVIEWER: If I’m a tech-savvy company, why should I be interested in the Expandiverse? What difference is it going to make to my business in 5, 10 or 20 years?
DAN ABELOW: It’s a good question. What difference would the Expandiverse make to your company in 5,10, or 20 years?
I don’t see it that way at all. This is valuable and essential for you today for a very simple reason.
I leapt ahead 30, 50 years to create and conceptualize this world, and created 1,500 pages of documentation to describe how it works.
Now, here, we have your company sitting here in today’s world.
We have a vision and specification for how to build a world of the future.
You have to now compete with something that is potentially going to be there in 30, 40, 50 years.
If you thought about competing and you’re in 1950, and you thought about competing with companies from the 1990’s or the 2000’s, who do you think would win?
Some of the companies from the 1950’s will win, but I think more of the companies from the 1990’s and 2000’s will have many more advantages over you — and many more opportunities to beat you up, put you in the ground, game over.
I don’t think of the Expandiverse as the difference between X and Y. I think of it as a difference between the world of the future and today’s world. With a competition between the two, which companies are going to have the advantage?
I think those that see the world from the future and look back at you are going to crush you.
