In the Big Shift , that answer becomes less credible. Walls work in stable worlds but they can actually become obstacles in more rapidly changing worlds. In the exponential world we’re entering, walls may be replaced by networks as the most promising sources of advantage.

Conceptual Clarity

Clark Quinn

Ok, so I can be a bit of a pedant. Blame it on my academic background, but I believe conceptual clarity is important !
