Episode 1:
Broadband and wireless Internet connectivity are now commonplace in the developed world, but this wasn’t always the case. At the beginning of the 21st century, just over 300 million people (roughly 5% of the globe )had Internet access. The number of participants, and the type of participation has evolved rapidly over the last 20 years. In today’s episode, Open EXO’s Chief Science Officer Kent Langley and I discuss this evolution in three eras: Dawn of the Internet & PCs, Introduction of the Web 2.0 & Mobile, and Spread of the Exponential Technologies - the Exponential Now. We explore what each of previous eras looked like, and what we can expect from the global human network as we move forward.


In this episode, Kent Langley and I discuss:

  • When the commercial internet gained mass adoption- 7:00
  • Evolution of web technology and community platforms - 14:52
  • Understanding exponential technologies and the concept of exponential organizations - 18:53
  • The role AI (and related technologies) will play in the global human network - 26:19
