Network Society: the coming socio-economic phase transformation



David Orban

London Futurists

Posted: Feb 11, 2016


A set of simultaneous technologies is growing exponentially, with the common feature of being decentralized and organized into a network. This contrasts with the centralized and hierarchical organization of today’s traditional society and its basic functions. The shift from the old to the new structure will subject the Nation State to an unprecedented pressure. How should we respond to this pressure?

This London Futurists meetup featured David Orban, the Founder and Trustee of Network Society Research (NSR), a London-based global nonprofit organization.

The meeting was chaired by David Wood and the camera was operated by Nielo Gan.
