Don Tapscott: Four principles for the open world – a must see video!


Skjermbilde 2013-05-16 kl. 09.47.21The recent generations have been bathed in connecting technology from birth, says futurist Don Tapscott, and as a result the world is transforming into one that is far more open and transparent. In this inspiring talk, he lists the four core principles that show how this open world can be a far better place.

Don Tapscott takes a farseeing look at our digital, connected, hypercollaborative world. He’s the chair of Moxie Insight and has written 14 books about aspects of this new world, helping readers understand where the world is heading as our civilization fundamentally reshapes itself. In 1995, his book The Digital Economy was among the first to show how the internet would change the way we did business; in 2000, he defined the Net Generation and the “digital divide” in Growing Up Digital.

In his most recent works, he thinks deeply about newly possible collaboration “on an astronomical scale.” As the Industrial Age comes to an end, all our institutions are challenged (state, corporations, schools), he argues–and suggests that we need to reboot and reinvent civilization.
