There is a phase change approaching is the way human society is organized, flipping from centralized hierarchical organizations chiefly represented by the nation states, towards more efficient, flexible, and resilient forms of decentralized, peer-to-peer structures, the Network Society. What traditionally we thought were functions that could only be organized centrally, from energy production and distribution, manufacturing and food production, finance, education, health are now being radically rethought as the guiding principles behind the technological evolution of innovations such as the Internet are now pervading everything.
Not only a novel interpretation of ongoing changes, but also a guiding set of principles to evaluate the degree at which new ideas are well aligned with the these unstoppable developments, the lessons of the Network Society can inform the decisions of individuals, corporations and policymakers to design future-aware action plans navigating times of turbulent change.
