What  does  this  mean?  •  We  have  to  recognize  that  all  of  us  grew  up  in   a  par#cular  era,  one  that  civiliza#on  has  never   seen  before.        •  We  built  ins#tu#onal  prac#ces  that  prepared   us  to  live  in  a  period  of  rela#ve  stability  -­‐   where  skills  lasted  a  life#me.  •  Moving  from  the  Informa#on  Age  to  an  Age  of   Networked  Intelligence.

  14. 14. Just  stop  and  think  for  a  second  about  all  that  we  have   been  through  in  the  last  month.    There  are  powerful   messages  here.
