Technology is everywhere
In the near future, it is argued, technology will be everywhere. In our daily lives, in our industries and the economy at large, technology will be all pervasive. And therefore we will become more reliant on technology; at every level. But are we prepared? What will this mean to us, as individuals in our daily lives, but also as entrepreneurs, as managers, as policy makers?
It’s been quite a decade. Wall Street Journal columnists Tom Hayes and Mike Malone called it the Ten Year Century. Events that used to take place over the course of a century have been squeezed into a decade. In just ten years internet savvy terrorists have killed all hope of a more peaceful and civilised future, the global economy has bubbled up and down to eventually crash in the wake of a financial system breakdown, and entire industries have been—and are being—transformed as they are confronted by an avalanche of new game-changing products and services. And the root of all this change is technology.
