Aligning clock speed transformation in technology, society and government
Transformations in technology, government and society
The pendulums of technology, government and society swing at different speeds.
Technology innovation is faster than that of society and, in turn, changes within society are often ahead of government.
Technologies with systemic impacts on people and communities also advance more rapidly than our ability to truly grasp their implications and to weigh short-term benefits against long-term concerns (or vice-versa).
