    While advances in technology have delivered incredible advances for society, they are also forcing us to question societal assumptions.

  • Tech Giants' Scale Risks Stifling Innovation in Media Insider on 08/31/2018

    An environment comprising a small handful of enormous companies makes it harder for the next Henry Ford or Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg to emerge.

  • What It Takes To Have An Informed Citizenry in Media Insider on 08/17/2018

    Did you hear about the time in 1980 when we could have stopped climate change -- but didn't? Not you and me, but 20-odd people assembled in a fancy hotel.

  • The Ultimate Question About The Future in Media Insider on 08/03/2018

    Douglas Rushkoff's vomit-in-your-mouth report -- about the super-rich's plans for when the global order comes crashing down -- raises serious questions.

  • Everything Is Awesome -- And It Still Sucks in Media Insider on 07/20/2018

    It's a good time to be alive. If you don't believe me, try subscribing to the Future Crunch newsletter.

  • Three Essential Leadership Traits In The Digital Age in Media Insider on 07/06/2018

    "Leadership" is one of those words like "sustainability." There are dozens of Ph.D. programs on the topic, thousands of books, a million different interpretations and angles. Notwithstanding all this content, the scale at which we're operating means we need to talk about leadership now more than ever. Decisions about things like artificial intelligence, biotechnology, corporate governance and more affect billions of people. And things that are innocuous at a small scale can create huge challenges when scaled up. Marshmallows are delicious; the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is devastating.

    We gathered to raise a glass, just a half dozen of us. We knew him from high school, which had come to a capped and gowned end more than 25 years earlier. Some of us had been closer with him than others, but we all had a similar sense of him: big smile. Huge heart. Funny. Friendly. Made you feel good. Heartbreaking that he was gone.

  • Facebook's Actions Fail To Align With Zuck's Grander Visions in Media Insider on 05/25/2018

    "Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community," said founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg in his 2017 manifesto. He went on to describe, at length, the role the social network can play in helping people build supportive, safe, informed, civically engaged, and inclusive communities. It was a warm and fuzzy vision of the world, seen by many as an indication that Zuckerberg was preparing a political move. To some, however, Zuckerberg's manifesto seemed the height of irony.

  • Advertising Ignorance Is Not Bliss in Media Insider on 05/11/2018

    It's no wonder Facebook's efforts at transparency continually fall short of the full story. If people had true transparency, in real time, Facebook's business would fall apart. Outrage! Horror! It's easy to point the finger at Facebook. It's a huge company with a highly visible single leader. But this isn't just a Facebook problem, or a Google one, or a LinkedIn one.
