Don Tapscott shares insights on the Net Generation from the results of his $4 million research study on youth, innovation and the collaborative workplace.
Clay Shirky, a widely published authority on the Internet’s effects on society, and Don Tapscott, an author and adjunct professor at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto took the time to pose tough, timely questions to each other on how social media, intellectual property laws, and generational divides are affecting politics, business, and culture.
With the internet as a platform the Net Generation will change capitalism as we know it, but not without resistance.
In this inspiring talk, Tapscott lists four core principles that show how an open world is better.
Collaboration goes against the hierarchy which is deeply ingrained in our institutional DNA. Transparency is very counter cultural. Throughout history organizations have defaulted towards opacity.
