Musings from Digital Immigrants to Future Generations on Navigating the Age of Transformation
Suzanne M Murray, Robert B Murray, Sarah McCarry
Depending on your vantage point--as a Babyboomer, Gen Xer, Millennial, or Digital Native--the vast array of technology available to us today can be overwhelming, awe-inspiring, or just the reliable norm. In this relative context, how do we bridge the gap between those who are tech savvy and those who are technology-blind? How do we retain the wisdom of our elders while honoring the imagination and potential of our young people? Is it possible to embrace all of this technology and still remain human? Then again, what might we lose if we are unwilling to shift toward the future and accept the opportunity that all this innovation invites?
In this unique book, thought leaders from our time explore these very questions. Each contribution--whether presented in the form of an essay, poem, letter, dialogue, or fairytale--reveals valuable nuggets of wisdom to ponder as the human race shifts seemingly ever faster toward our future.
- In the 21st century, we have the potential to be more connected with each other, not less.
- Life before Facebook and mobile texting wasn’t better, just different.
- The imagination of today drives the technology of tomorrow.
- Love is always at the center.
Written from the perspective of multiple authors, this book speaks from a powerful collective voice of individuals who gathered and wrote together at the CAMalot 2012 conference (www.camalot2012.com) in Braselton, Georgia. Inspired by speaker and futurist David Houle (author of "Entering the Shift Age"), these professional coaches, nonprofit leaders, ministers, and more took the spirit of the conference and conversation--along with their own deep life and professional experience--and poured it into this book.
Read it fast, or digest it slowly. Then read it to someone younger than you or gift it to
someone older. We are all in this together. Let the dialogue between today’s thought
leaders and the world’s next generation of leaders begin!
