Futurist, change management specialist and “X: The Experience When Business Meets Design” author Brian Solis sits down with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur to talk about the past, present and future and how more and faster change is coming, and the only question is whether you’re going to be a part of that change or a victim of it.
Along the way, the two discuss how disruptive technologies and changing cultural standards will affect the news business, city planning, transportation and nearly every other aspect of how we live our lives.
Specifically, Uygur and Solis address:
- Why it’s not so terrible that people engage with their phones more than with one another face-to-face
- Why Apple, a company that never designed a remote control, will soon revolutionize what a remote control can do.
- How legacy-based decision making is killing both the taxi and TV news businesses
- Why Cenk says he’s more afraid of a random kid in Nebraska than all the cable news organizations in the world.
