Not too far into the distant future, everything from our current existence that can be digitized will have been. Every traditional organizational model will have been tested to the ends of its limits. Every business, organization and individual will be expected to keep up with the wave of change that information will have inflicted. No one will have escaped.
Structures that make complex ecosystems more understandable will become even more necessary to combat dis/misinformation and create social momentum. We will slowly and methodically have to reinvent every single policy, process and tool across every community, industry and medium to deal with our new digital reality.
To do this responsibly, we will learn and expand the use of an ever growing and changing set of concepts and principles called information architecture. We will use the practice of IA to cut through a minefield of change and consequence. We will use IA to pour understanding, clarity and consensus like concrete to be built upon. We will create a truly new world. A world made of information.
