“The future is not something that just happens, but it is something that we shape together.”
-Dwight Witherspoon, Director of Communications Operations at Ericsson
Time goes by so fast that we hardly have a moment to think. And for the most part, we are unaware of how a little alteration here or there will change the fabric of our daily life. As Dwight has pointed out, we are all working on shaping our future. The effect of what we do and what we create will impact our lives in ways that we cannot yet begin to imagine.
We are in the midst of a shift from a technical infrastructure to a social infrastructure. With the Networked Society, with everything connected, it is up to us to invent new possibilities for our world and to make things happen. Merging technology into societies needs to be seamless and intuitive. This is where you come in. Your apps are what will make this transition smooth. With this year’s theme the Networked Society, you can try to find ideas and solutions to make the Networked Society a reality.
