New technologies, forms of collaboration and revenue models: the newspapers are full of them. The changes are now happening so fast that our organizations and ways of working, which are still focused on finding long-term solutions, are increasingly getting stuck.
The keynote is about what happens now that everyone can publish, duplicate and produce freely and what the impact is on society and the economy when people do this not only for financial reasons, but also to contribute to a better world. This creates unprecedented opportunities that are also constantly getting bigger and better. There is no time at all for permanent solutions.
Citizens, companies and organizations must learn to embrace the Never-Never-ending Principle. We have to manage our affairs with solutions that are temporary, so that we can constantly adapt and improve. This requires a totally new look at the fundamentals of our lives: work, school, living, relationships, governmental functions, management and legislation.
