Okay, so I didn’t actually get invited to this week’s summit in Davos of the World Economic Forum to discuss the implications of the technological revolution on the future of the modern world. (I think it was between me and Leo DiCaprio for a spot.) But I have certainly been a virtual fly on the wall. The concept of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the dialogue around it should be required reading for everyone.

There is no question about the transformative power of the digital revolution we’re in the middle of. Indeed, the “Uberization” of products and processes is well underway. But what about the climate and culture of receptivity with which these innovations are greeted? Isn’t that almost as important as the technology developments themselves?
