Dear all,

please see the link below for an infographic from the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council (GAC) on the Future of the Internet.  I serve on that GAC and you can see more on this GAC and the other participants at: http://www.weforum.org/content/global-agenda-council-future-internet-2012 .   It is worth the visit.

Introduction:

“The Internet is the largest and most rapidly evolving complex adaptive system in human history. It connects us all. It helps to feed the human soul and our desire for knowledge, learning and exchange. We can observe it, we can harness it, and we can envision some of what it can bring, but we cannot predict the tremendous wave of global innovation it continues to unleash.    All of us are architects of its destiny.”

The infographic is being rolled out today in Davos at various CEO sessions.  It was our attempt to capture the state of the discussion re the Internet in 2 pages.    It can be found at:  http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_GAC_InnovationEngine_2013.pdf

Please distribute it and use it wherever you can.  The infographic addresses many important areas and was meant to speak to leaders, inter alia policy, business, civil society organizations, etc.

Best regards and all comments or suggestions for improvement welcome.
