Abundance – The future is better than you think
For everyone interested in the powers of contemporary and future technology development and its potential to change the world into something better, there’s a new book that seems interesting to read: “Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think” by Peter H. Diamandis.
Peter H. Diamandis is chairman and CEO of the X-Prize Foundation, which has defined a number of different X-Prizes as incentive for major technology development projects, and he is also cofounder and chairman of Singularity University.
The book focuses on how technology actually has resolved a large number of problems and on how the world is getting better even though many believe it’s getting worse.
Four emerging forces are studied: exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion.
