More fragmented, and more connected, than ever.

More global, and more local, at the same time.

It will be interesting to see how the new generation of communicators will cope with this emerging reality, this infinite matrix of intersecting communities.

For whom the podcast downloads, it downloads for thee.

Great post, I think you hit the nail on the head when you talk about how changes in technology will make it more, not less, important to act intelligently. Accountability is a beautiful (albeit scary thing).

One thought. I think the most important thing about the future is the combination of #1 and #2, the seamless intergration of information flows.

Sure I work on a team of only a few people and much of what I work on has little relevance to the other people in my company. However, with the click of a button I can reach thousands of people, inside and outside the company. I can connect with people with similar interests, share information and post thoughts.

Thomas Friedman summed up these seeminlgy conflicting, but complementary ideas of fragmentation and increased connectivity with the idea of "The Lexus and the Olive Tree." Any large structure, be it a social group, a country or a business is going to have to deal with this inevitable movement.

Thanks for the great thoughts,
