Event Description
Author of "The End of Big: How the Internet Makes David the New Goliath", Internet pioneer Nicco Mele explores how our ability to connect instantly, constantly, and globally is altering the power of business, politics, culture, education and more with a breathtaking speed that is disrupting our lives in revolutionary ways. Many of these changes are for the good. However, Mele argues that the new realities of technology come at a high price. Mele's message is both alarming and hopeful - thought provoking and passionately argued - and will change the way you use technology forever. Since his early days as one of Esquire Magazine's "Best and Brightest" in America, Mele has been a sought-after innovator, media commentator, and speaker. He serves on a number of private and non-profit boards, including the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard and Breakthrough.tv.
