Age of Turbulence (animation): old ways crumble … but new ways cannot take flight … opportunities, dangers and enabling the future

This is a concise statement of the challenges, potential scenarios and shifts in the future. The video is highly recommended and, amongst other things, identifies 4 shifts. I would add a fifth shift. The Information Age is not a constant. Information Age structures can't scale to support the challenges of the future. The future can not take flight while Information Age structures prevent evolution. Wisdom Networks are a universal scalable organisation structure, collaboration platform and information management system that can organise the largest communities. Wisdom Networks are an important enabler of many of the forecasts in the video. A summary of the shift from Information Age to Wisdom Networks is provided after the video.
