Thursday’s Big Idea
Today's Big Idea: Technik
A new era requires a new vocabulary. In their new book Hybrid Reality: Thriving in the Emerging Human-Technology Civilization, Parag and Ayesha Khanna explore the frontier of the information revolution, or what they call 'The Hybrid Age.'
This new age will be defined by the increasing merging of human biology with technology. Success in the Hybrid Age will be determined by Technik, which the Khannas define as "the values and the skill sets" that allow us to integrate technologies successfully."
So "whether the future is a dystopian global class struggle over technology or a Pax Technologica of transparency," the Khannas argue that "access and equity will depend on spreading Technology Quotient, or TQ, above all else."
