If you haven't seen this, a great clip titled Did You Know about how information availability is changing our lives and world considering globalization, hyper competition, innovation, and the shifting balance of economies. A couple of favorites:
- 1 in 8 married couples in the US met online
- Today's learners will have 10-14 jobs by the time they're 38
