#MillenniumLive had the pleasure to chat with speaker, author, and innovation expert, Mike Steep. He is the Founder & Executive Director of the Disruptive Technology & Digital Cities Program at Stanford University, and the author of First Light of Day, a fictional story set in the year 2045 that explores the impact of disruptive technology, drawing eerie parallels to the world we’re living in today.
Steep makes the point that technology has already brought us to a “dystopian society” as a result of the absurd wealth differential and power of Silicon Valley. Yet despite this, we cannot refute the tremendous benefits and opportunities that have come along the way. He gives us a look into a book he’s currently working on, which examines the reasons why we’re having an explosion in innovation from a business perspective.
