Here’s some questions to ask during Reboot 8.0 (heard after Michael Thomsen’s talk on renaissance?):
What’s the point of it all? Is it actually going to happen? Re-renaissance? What’s the impact of current way of writing on our thinking? What happens to privacy when we’re interconnected? What will be the next phase of democracy? Are we doing everything we can with current tech? How do we work together on larger scale to improve the world (e.g. Amnesty)? How can we be more honest with users of our tech? What is the next step? Where are the lifeboats on our titanic? What will not change? What will our children think of all this? How can we monitor this change and make it accountable? If all this stops what trade will you do tomorrow? Is this the end of nation states and will we live in 2nd Life? How can we be smarter together? Are we on thee verge of letting massive availability kill the idea of greatness?
