If You Stop Learning You Lose The Chance To Be Entrepreneurial

Dan Pontefract

Over the course of his writing, rather cleverly, Peter Drucker found a way to coin our past, present and future into distinct societies. At its root, a “society” is a group of people sharing traditions and values, organized as a community. Think of it as a collection open learners.

So i was on a panel at WebScience@10 in London ( @WebScienceTrust , #WebSci10 ), where the first question asked was, “What are two aspects of ‘trust and the Web’ that you think are most relevant/important at the moment?” ” My answer went something like this:::: 1) The Net is young, and the Web with it.

But let's not forget that we have been in the post-truth era for some time (indeed, one wonders whether we ever entered the truth era in the first place). After all, the rise of the post-truth era is made possible by the failures of the education system to prepare people to identify truth for themselves, and the failure of traditional media to present the news in an honest and forthright manner.
