Reading the latest news about online privacy and hacking, one only wonders if there are other ways of addressing these issues. After every data preach, security experts explain how it happened, but you wonder “why they didn’t prevent it from happening on the first place?” Probably because their mind was set on one approach and that idea took hold and they ignored the other possibilities (vulnerabilities) that a hacker may exploit.
The same concept could be applied to many hot topics of the day such as (cloud computing, green technology, mobile apps, social media websites, etc.) Focusing so much on green technology may actually stress the environment by using green resources.
This is not only about “thinking out of the box”, but it is about how popular culture controls our thought process that even by “thinking out of the box” we are still thinking within some type of boundaries.
