Reading Ogdens’ take on the ‘Future’  which is now the ‘Present’ and in some cases the ‘Past’ is interesting.

It is quite incredible the advances in science, technology and art that have all taken place within the last twenty years.

It is a time of real fast change.  ‘Adapt or become part of the road’.

Learning is now a constant activity. Sitting in a classroom is a thing of the past.

Permanent jobs are becoming relics of another ‘age’. Someone somewhere else can and will do it faster and cheaper than you.

Thus we need the connection economy to survive and indeed thrive. In the connection economy one needs to stand out. In order to stand out one must create something that is meaningful to someone. Seth Godin describes this well in his book ‘The Icarus Deception’
