Disruptive Technology - NetSquared 2006
Making the Most of Disruption featuring Paul Saffo, Howard Rheingold, and Lucy Bernholz (moderator) speaking at the NetSquared Conference 2006.A disruptive technology is one that causes significant changes in the way that individuals live, businesses operate, or society behaves. Passenger jet airplanes, the microcomputer, the Internet, and the cellphone are some prominent examples from the second half of the last century. What technologies today are truly disruptive, and which are a continuation or acceleration of ongoing trends? Which ones are just a flash in the pan?Do these technologies represent serious disruptions that should be leveraged for maximum social good? Are they really a continuation of long running trends? Or are they pipe dreams that aren't technically or politically feasible? If these technologies have seriously disruptive potential, how can the nonprofit sector take advantage of the disruption? How should the disruptions shape our goals and the means we use to achieve them?Presented by NetSquared in collaboration with Link TV.Funding of Link TV's video coverage provided by:Surdna FoundationLeland Fikes FoundationCare2.commoreless
