The brilliant thing about technology, particularly anything related to information technology, is that it is an exponentially growing phenomenon. So if you can establish a business around this fact, you can potentially latch on and grow at a similar rate.

A great example is what Ray Kurzweil does with his business. This is the guy that invented the keyboard, the flat-bed scanner, text-to-speech synthesier etc. But what he has done before and continues to do is predict where the technology will be at in the future, and create new technologies now that will be ready for launch when the tech catches up. e.g. he created a device for blind people to read text, and he built the product on a desktop computer knowing that in a few years time the same processing power would fit into a mobile phone. Voila.

The future will be amazing :D
