This world is rapidly changing. In 60 years, mankind went from first-flight to space flight. In 1943, the first programmable electric computer was built. 54 years later, processing power hit Tera-flops. This year, IBM hit 122.3 Peta-flops. In 1875, the first telephone call was made, with the first coast-to-coast call in 1915. Then, in 1969, the first ARPAnet transmission was made, computers talking over the telephone. In less time than it took to stretch a phone call across the continental United States, we Americans now consider broadband internet access a basic utility.

In the past 4 decades, the biggest success stories center around computers. From Bill Gates and Steve Jobs to Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos, the one thing they all have in common is utilizing computer technology to bring useful service to others and making millions while doing so. In fact, 5 of the 6 richest people in the United States made their fortunes with computers.

Isn’t it about time that you grabbed the bull by the horns for your own ride? With the rate that technology has been moving, we are in a golden age where industrial computing power is available to those who look for it. All it takes is the right road map.
