Monitoring how technology is driving change and the impact on people and society, the economy and geo-politics How they are and are not adapting. Exploring the advocates for change, hi-lighting the leaders, the victims, and the movements, e.g.: climate change, identity politics, energy transitions, healthcare reform. Share your concerns and insights.
We are seeking stories of how people are adapting or not to change and the organizations that are or are not helping. Advances in technologies continue to shape our future for good or for otherwise. Are we vulnerable? Are our institutions capable of mitigating the risks of these technologies being used/abused in the interest of advancing utopian visions of post-modernism and identity politics? Do you have a story to tell? Let me know. Editor@KEInetwork.net
