Our world seems increasingly connected and unpredictable. Rapidly occurring events in fragile areas of the world, once believed to be 'far away,' continually impact global society and local community, everywhere. An idea spawned in a basement in Stockholm can attract 100s of millions in capital and disrupt an entire industry across the globe. A local break-out of mosquito-borne virus can frustratingly migrate across a continent, yet we can track it by the hour and prepare. A political candidate's media-savvy can give voice to many, and threaten a political party and democratic system simultaneously. Social network technology can effectively aid in dislodging a brutal regime, yet be useless in creating a government to replace it. An online social network can be larger than a nation-state, disrupt an exploitive international corporate clothing campaign one day, and the next day be no more powerful than a chat-room. The internet of things can enhance remote health care, emergency response, and streamline logistics like never before, yet make entire communication/transportation grids vulnerable to 'hackerism'. Our ways of producing and consuming are moving into what is seen to be a promising 4th industrial revolution, and are threatening our planet's social and eco-stability at the same time....
