The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be: The Age of Acceleration

Someone has been speeding up the treadmill, and we are having trouble keeping up. What is going on? How will the technological changes we are facing alter the future of work and how we adapt to these complexities? How will self-driving vehicles change our cities? How will 3-D printers change manufacturing? What will all this do to the job market?
Mike will talk about some models of understanding this wild and crazy future that confronts us, and some ideas for coping and even thriving amid the uncertainties and acceleration.
