Summary note:
  • The director of MIT's Media Lab and a contributor to "Wired" present a set of working principles for adapting and thriving in the face of the twenty-first century's rapidly changing and unpredictable digital environments.
  • The world is more complex and volatile today than at any other time in our history. The tools of our modern existence are getting faster, cheaper, and smaller at an exponential rate, just as billions of strangers around the world are suddenly just one click or tweet or post away from each other. The future will run on an entirely new operating system-- with a steep learning curve. Ito and Howe present nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period.
