We want to travel faster. Work faster. Communicate and connect faster. We're a society fixated on speed, because we're a society fixated on technology. It's our collective accelerator. As technology moves, we move. But the same technology that fulfills our need for speed also poses our biggest challenge. Because technology doesn't just increase the speed at which we move, it increases the speed at which change moves.
