Survival, Prosperity and the Future of Technology
Technology has long impacted life and business. More recently, new technology paradigms affect what businesses do, not just how they do it. Looking back, we see a pattern of accelerating change – but how long can it last? And what does it mean for institutions unable to adapt? To answer these questions, Horace Dediu navigates a compelling documentary review of a century of technological change, and explores its effect on our lives, families, jobs and institutions.
What’s Next? The Future of Mobile in Business
For 30 years, IT and personal and mobile computing have evolved to encompass and extend (and disrupt) the industries it touched – from telecommunications to entertainment, and now apparel.

Horace Dediu discusses innovation and the future of mobile, and explores what the post-mobile world will look like as Apple, Google and others are shaping the mobile experience of the future. Other highlights from the conversation include:
- Understanding the factors that drive adoption of disruptive innovations
- Recognizing the next disruption from patterns of previous ones
- How to resize scope of opportunity when the basis of competition changes
- Other “white spaces” Horace sees that are ripe for disruptive innovation, including education industry and transportation
