Ismail & Templeton Say “Be Prepared for Exponential Times”

Be Prepared for Exponential Times – Salim Ismail & Brad Templeton – DLD Moscow 2012

I’ve been a fan of Brad Templeton for a long time, but I watched only Salim Ismail’s part of “Be Prepared for Exponential Times” presentation. I mined the following quotes because I strongly agree with them.

All of our societal structures evolved in a time when we were local in a linear world. Today we’re global and in an exponential world. — Salim Ismail

Society is not ready for the pace of change the technology is bringing. — Salim Ismail

Once you take any domain and discipline and ground it in information properties it goes into an exponential growth path. And then nothing will shake it off that path after that. — Salim Ismail

  1. Hi Gerald – thanks for the shoutout. I too have been following Brad for a while – am a big fan of his.

    It’s important to point out that some of my speaking points come from Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil, the founders of Singularity University. Your first quote is Peter’s thinking and the third is Ray’s central observation about the power of information.

    The middle one is mine. I’m quite concerned that our leaders today are hopelessly out of date about how fast our world is changing.

      Thank You for taking the time to comment. It’s scary that our political leaders seem to be ignoring what can happen given Infinite Computing. [Diamandis] Again, Thank You for commenting.
