Internet pioneer Nicco Mele shows how our ability to connect instantly, constantly, and globally is altering the power of business, politics, culture, education and more with a breathtaking speed that is disrupting our lives in revolutionary ways. Many of these changes are for the good. However, Nicco argues that the new realities of technology come at a high price. Nicco's keynote is both alarming and hopeful – thought provoking and passionately argued – and will change the way you use technology forever.
