"Specialization is for insects." This Robert Heinlein quote is more appropriate than ever, the pace of change continues to accelerate and the standards of today are the relics of tomorrow. How do we thrive in a world that is constantly changing? Proposed by Joi
Ito of the MIT Media Lab, this talk will apply these nine principles for navigating the 21st century.

Open Source, Agile and DevOps are fundamental to adapting to change, managing risk through resiliency, and cultivating a culture of networked improvement. We may not know what the future holds, but we can get ready for it today.
