Now That We're Here

the future of everything

How do you prepare for a future if you don’t know what it is? How do you specialize in anything if the horizon is constantly shifting?

What’s the goalpost and how do we get there? Is there even a goalpost

The hyper-connected world that once seemed futuristic is now here. And now that we’re here, it’s time for us to educate ourselves for sweeping and endless possibilities. One way to do that is to blur the lines between technology, democracy, design, economics and data, and reconfigure our approach to learning altogether. This book is a giant leap in that direction.

By harnessing the wisdom of thought leaders and intellectuals throughout history, by blending business and humanity, industry and society, and by covering cross-disciplinary themes, authors Akshay Tyagi and Akshat Tyagi give us a ground-breaking, genre-defying and utterly mind-bending collection of essays that will help us prepare for the here and now.
