The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same By @DaveGinsburg | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Super Bowl 50 - The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same
By Dave Ginsburg

This next weekend our city hosts Super Bowl 50, a week-long media and megastar frenzy overlaid with streaming video, stadium WiFi that may actually work, and for the lucky few in downtown SF, Verizon microcells, a precursor to 5G. But wind the clock back to the winter of 1967. Super Bowl 1, Bart Starr and the Green Bay Packers.

A world before the Internet, cable, or satellite TV, smartphones, PCs, DVDs, and even CDs. The space race and a glowing vision of the future, courtesy of the 1964 New York World's Fair.  A time of cassettes and 8-track tapes, Vans sneakers (at least in SoCal), and for the fortunate, color TV.

Still, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

More depressing, federal spending has ballooned 27x ($3.6T vs $134B), the debt by 55x ($18.1T vs $328B), the Consumer Price Index by 7x (237 vs 32), and the cost of a postage stamp by almost 10x ($0.49 vs $0.05).  Remember the Doomsday Clock?  It too has advanced, from 12 minutes to midnight to only 3 minutes.

And the average price of a Super Bowl ticket?   From $85 (inflation adjusted) to anywhere from $500-$3000 face value, or 5x that on the after-market.   As I write this, tickets are $2780 and up on StubHub.
