1. Future of the Internet – 8 Expanding Dimensions

    In March of 1989 when Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first online message that would eventually lead to the World Wide Web, it was similar to the first car leaving an inventor’s workshop. The highway system for cars started on horse and buggy trails and the Internet was born on switching networks designed for telephones. With roads turning into sophisticated highways and phone lines morphing into fib…Read More

  2. The Coming of “Peak Car”

    In what year will the number of cars in the world reach its peak and auto sales overall begin to decline? For most, it may be surprising to realize we’re already there in the U.S. Growing data shows many wealthy economies have already hit “peak car,” a point of market saturation characterized by an unprecedented deceleration in the growth of car ownership, total miles driven, and annual sale…Read More

  3. The Great Mannequin Vs. Fashion Model Showdown

    If it weren’t for their glowing eyes, I would have sworn they were live fashion models dancing in the store window. Moving smoothly to match the music playing in the background, each of the seven perfectly proportioned mannequins swayed to a carefully choreographed set of moves designed to draw attention to the clothes they were wearing. The eerie feeling that they were watching me as much as I …Read More

  4. The Future of South Korea

    When Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, took the stage at Edaily’s 6th World Strategy Forum on June 11th at the famed Shilla Seoul, his keynote about how he became an entrepreneur was very personal. With a comical flare for storytelling, he carefully laid out many of his failed attempts for launching businesses prior to Wikipedia.

  5. The Black Hat Robots are Coming

    It’s ironic, this whole effort to work so hard to make working obsolete, or in the case of artificial intelligence, the effort to think so hard to make thinking obsolete. But then it should really come as no mystery. Machines are far superior to people. Every worker brings their own set of baggage to the workplace, and officials have created countless laws to protect these workers, making the hu…Read More

  6. Three Laws of Exponential Capabilities – Video

    (Click to see video) We are entering into a world where driverless vehicles will eliminate millions of driving positions; robotic systems will work relentlessly day and night eliminating millions of manufacturing, welding, painting, and assembly positions; and things that seemed impossible to automate in the past will have computers and machines replacing people’s jobs.

  8. All those Damn Laws! Over 18 Million Laws in the U.S… and climbing!

    How many laws are affecting you as you’re reading this today? If you think you know the answer, I will tell you you’re lying, and there is a law against lying about how many laws there are. I really don’t know that there is, but then again, you really don’t know that there isn’t. So we could both be in trouble. However, I do know that ignorance of the law is no defense. This is something…Read More

  9. 12 Emerging Trends that Everyone Missed at CES

    Every year that I attend CES in Las Vegas I reach a point of sensory overload. It’s not just from all the people, lights, noise, and smells, but an overload of product strategies and emerging trends for the coming year. With everything from R2D2 showing up outside the convention center, to meeting celebrities on the showroom floor, or coming face-to-face with a Paul Bunyan-sized electronic game-…Read More

  10. What Comes after the Nation State? – Fractal Governance

    In the beginning life was simple, just land and people. No borders, no restrictions, and no governments breathing down everyone’s neck. Over time, cultures formed around a common language and geography determined many aspects of lifestyle. As an example, people who lived next to the sea oriented much of their life around fishing, while those further inland spent more time hunting and farming. Tr…Read More
