In my 2014 NineShift presentation, I said we were "On the Edge of History." No longer.
We are now over the edge.
In 2015 we were leaving the Industrial Age quickly behind,
and rushing forward in the 21st Century.
Collaboration is no longer thought of as cheating. Marriott moved its headquarters to be on a light rail line, in order to attract and retain Gen Y workers. High end apartment building projects were initiated in downtown city areas previously inhabited by parking lots. The poor have moved to the suburbs. Etc.
Here's my visual image of the 21st century now rushing forward. The plants on the river's edge might be "rushes" as well. Like in the river, there may be boulders ahead for the 21st century, but nothing to stop it.
