TTI/Vanguard: Fieldtrip to PARC

New technologies and applications are creating new imperatives, from research and development, to printing and software distribution, to media and content creation, and beyond. In this conference, we’ll explore how upheavals caused by the adoption of networked technologies might affect organizations and entire industries. We’ll examine some of the new digital economics (and economies) that we will inevitably encounter. Where will the control points be, and what are the big risks for large-scale systems and new players? What’s being created, what’s being remade, and what’s being reinvented?
