Mark Zuckerberg (Chief Executive Officer of Facebook) Born: May 14, 1984 (age 33 years in a few weeks), White Plains, NY Net worth: US$59.4 billion (April 2017) is now the fourth richest man in the USA. Zuckerberg was age 4 when Google was founded.

#1 Bill Gates (age 61)
#2 Jeff Bezos (age 53)
#3 Warren Buffett (age 86)
#4 Mark Zuckerberg (age 33)

He is laying out his vision for ten years from now where we will be able to type with our brain, and stare into augmented reality glasses and communicate with people all over the world.

So basically our society will become like Caprica, but hopefully we won't destroy our world like they did in that SyFy series.

Brain to text will enable people to make idiotic comments at a much faster rate.

I'm wary of calling new developments a "fad," because history is a harsh judge (and just about everything from the railroad to the internet were once declared "fads"). But I see really limited uses for such things.

Like voice commands on phones. It seems people use them most in ads. In real life, almost only when they have to.

Do you give your phone voice commands?
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Typing with your brain can never succeed. The market of people with a brain is too small.
