Society is accelerating. Information is flowing faster and with it comes change. We must build our institutions to be adaptable, not fall for the arrogant trap of believing the way we do something now is the best way to do it forever, or even, for that matter, five years from now. Learning to adjust to the new speed of life is going to be hard for people, people like robust institutions and fear change, but that’s not going to change the reality on the ground. We must build to be flexible.
