Abstract

Our lives, privately and collectively are being lived in a landscape of increasingly transparent data fountains. How can we bring everyone to the table, provide access tailored to individuals and networks, and most wisely use the symbiotic stewardships we are forging with the machines we have created, for the good of the globe and for our children's children? Through our technologies we have an awesome power to shape consequences far beyond our lives. And with that power comes responsibility of a magnitude that individuals and groups have not known before, as Bill Joy pointed out in his now famous WIRED article, "Why the Future Doesn't Need Us". This presentation will examine why the future does need us and the parallel issues, the current efforts and the implications of digital literacy, e-learning, and emerging technologies for citizens and patients in business horizons of 3 to 10 years out. It will seek to provoke questions, and provide some reflections on how we can ensure wise decision-making, individually and collectively.
