Shared Practice—How Technology Changes How We Live and Work
Digital technology seems ubiquitous, touching nearly every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Its rapid evolution continues to significantly affect how people live and work, and how they communicate with one another, within increasingly diverse, complex social networks. And the information lifecycle today moves much faster than it did 30, 20, even 10 years ago. Just as we adopt a new device or learn a new piece of software, the next best and greatest innovation comes along that renders our new tool or toy obsolete.
