“The lesson the world should take from Apple is that a company needs to become multi-dimensional. It needs to mix the core business with the disruptive innovation. It needs to combine the intellectual with the artistic. It needs to maintain within it the rational and the lunatic.”
“To be effective in this new world, you will need to master the skills of empathy and teamwork, as well as leadership and driving change. You will need to know how to function in a world that is not a hierarchy but a kaleidoscopic global team of teams, with no boundaries between sectors and change that happens at an escalating pace.”
Bill Drayton and Valeria Budinich

Security and freedom are not necessarily tradeoffs.
Great victories for humanity have initiated in protests and non-violent civil disobedience.
Social networks, our ability to self-organize, to produce content, to share, to curate, to collaborate will be fundamental in shifting our direction towards a sustainable and fair society.
