Watch this 15 minute talk by author Douglas Rushkoff on his concept of “present shock“- our real-time age where what matters is what happens now. “We no longer have a sense of a future, of goals, of direction at all. We have a completely new relationship to time; we live in an always-on “now,” where the priorities of this moment seem to be everything.”
In this video, he talks about present shock as it relates to publishing – something that should be thought provoking for any organization that produces publications as part of their business model.
