The data-driven information age has precipitated massive disruption. 90% of the world’s data was created in the past 2 years, and real-time analytics has produced foundational shifts to civilization. Our underlying metaphors and worldviews are fundamentally changing as our perception of the NOW becomes shorter, and basic clock-rate of our lives gets faster.
In this presentation, internet futurist Nova Spivack puts the contemporary shift towards Nowism into context. Outlining the dramatic implications as our technology, thinking, and culture shift from the future-oriented focus of the Industrial Age to the now-centric focus of the Information Age, he’ll explore the future of the present.
