On February 1st, I will be launching a column on Forbes.com, Disruption and Democracy
Disruption and Democracy explores the intersection between advancing technologies, entrepreneurship, and public policy.
These days, we are constantly hearing about a new development or breakthrough that promises to change our world. Most of the time, it’s just hype. But sometimes, despite the odds, it happens – and a new idea or product transforms the way an entire industry works. Today’s world is one of rapid change and far-reaching consequences. The types of disruptions that used to occur once in an era or generation in the past are now happening in a matter of years or months. Disruption is coming to the fields of public policy and governance as well, they are no exception. Along the way, important opportunities, challenges, and questions will arise. How we handle these changes will shape whether they actually lead to positive outcomes.
