This presentation was first released as Lecture in two Startup Accelerators lately. The presentation recaps on several digital trends and correlates them with Platform Design, previously covered in the record breaking "Future Proof Design" presentation available here: http://www.slideshare.net/Meedabyte/future-proof-design-and-the-platform-design-canvas.
In search for new ideas to frame Platform Design as a discipline in a more global discourse regarding the digital market, I went in search of complementary theories: most of this research have been consolidated in this lecture
In parallel, the Platform Design canvas is transforming into a more comprehensive Toolkit. See context here: http://wp.me/plmpp-uG
