I’m often asked by readers where they can find an overview of my ideas around the Great Disruption and where society is heading, so they can revisit them or share them with friends and family. In our information, media and idea rich world this now of course has to come in many different formats.
Thanks to the University of Sydney’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions my presentation was recorded when I spoke at the Sydney Ideas lecture series and is now available for download. It was broadcast nationally on ABC Radio on Background Briefing so an audio version can be podcast from their site here or you can watch the video in full here, including Rosemary Lyster’s introduction and the question and answer session.
For those who prefer a quick read, my first Cockatoo Chronicles summarises the arguments in 850 words here. Or you can read how Tom Friedman at the NYT sees the question here. The original letter from July 2008 is available from my website here.
For those can only deal with Twitter length commentary, you can follow me here, but I’m afraid I haven’t got the arguments quite summarised to that brevity yet! Perhaps “The revolution is coming hold on for the ride!” or maybe just “Shop less, Live more”
Your suggestions welcome!
