Read Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future Online Free - Today, not only is everything digital getting faster, cheaper, and smaller at an exponential rate, we also have the Internet.

And with any change, we have seen many strategic blunders and extraordinary learning curves along the way.
At last, in THE PRINCIPLES, Joey Ito and Jeff Howe have distilled nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period. These principles give us a roadmap on how to thrive no matter what industry we're in.

I was reading Alice in Wonderland at the same time as Whiplash. I always read one book of fiction and one of non-fiction at the same time. The combination of reading these two books together was perfect to shake my subconscious and bring it to embrace the uncertainty of the world we live in by gi...

Philosophy, sociology, psychology, biology, physics, history; this book mirrors the timetable of a freshman in general studies. But it does so in a way that captures your imagination and forces you to ask the big questions about the future of our race. What will come next? How do we go forward? T...

MIT e Media Lab são hoje duas marcas da ciência. A primeira, uma Universidade em Boston, a segunda, um grande centro de investigação dessa universidade, pioneiro nos estudos que cruzam Arte e Ciência. Sendo Joi Ito o atual diretor desse mesmo Media Lab, faz de “Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster...

Five stars for concepts, 2 stars for writing. Feels like it was initially a series of essays, and as a compiled text there's a lot of repetition.
Joi Ito is the current head of the MIT Media Lab, and this book talks both about their approach and their understanding of our increasingly technologica...

I enjoyed this book, one of several “things are changing fast and in multiple directions all at the same time!” books recently published, another being Thomas Friedman’s "Thank You For Being Late: an Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Acceleration," which I’m in the middle of reading.

A ideia de orientar ações com base em princípios (ao invés de regras fixas) em um mundo cada vez mais complexo faz muito sentido para mim. É o que mais me chamou atenção no livro. Ainda que os princípios detalhados pelo autor sejam bem coerentes com a época atual.

Alvin Toffler, who recently passed on, wrote about the rapid rate of change that society was experiencing and suggested that outposts be built where new technologies be tested on communes of humans, in order to ensure that the populace at large wouldn't be shocked by the rapid changes.

One of the most important books in the past year.
A quick but deep read. Anyone grappling with the rapid pace of change (in all sectors and across the planet) should read this fantastic book by Joichi Ito and Jeff Howe.
[full disclosure - Joi is a friend and fellow not quite a graduate of the Uni...

I like the first three sections, but I drifted and couldn't finish the book. (I skimmed, trying to get back into it, because I could tell there was some cool stuff being talked about...but it just didn't click. Sorry! I tried!) The first three sections discuss "emergence over authority" (crowdsou...

I liked it. I found it to be very interesting. As an older person who matured under the "old management" system the book was a little technical at times but it was necessary. The book made it clear that mankind needs to operate it's businesses and most aspects of life in a new way that is in tune...
