Speakout Advanced p 77. Life in 2020. Extra Listening
As part of a special multimedia project, Ericsson (the telecom company) asked 20 thinkers to “share their view on the drivers of the future and how connectivity/broadband is changing the world.” What will life be like in 2020? How will the world evolve? What habits and needs will people have? What kinds of technologies will they use to make life easier? New talks are being added to the collection each week (find them all here), and in the playlist above, we’re featuring one such talk by Don Tapscott, the author of Wikinomics and Grown Up Digital. He sees the next generation of leaders changing the world, and for the better. They have grown up on the web. They think differently because their brains are wired differently. They’re smarter. And they’re ready to initiate sweeping changes in the way we do things. It’s a rather hopeful talk (a rarity these days).
