This is one of the reasons Jon Glesinger and I started <a href="http://www.glexnet.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">GleXnet</a> all those years ago.
For reasons that will become obvious over the next few weeks – I find myself more and more talking to people about why part of the Future of Work is about extracting ourselves from Industrial Age Thinking – and understanding that “the future is already here … its just not very evenly distributed” … as William Gibson said over twenty years ago.
It still isn’t – but if you look around – it is being applied. And more of that to come in future posts.
Meanwhile – spotted this article today as I trawled my sources – and it resonated. Enjoy.

Isn’t it time to embrace the 21st century and rebuild the way we work?
