In the near future, at least five billion people around the world will use some form of mobile device to download information, access knowledge and coach and teach each other.
Some will have the intellectual capacity and motivation to really make something of this opportunity, wherever they happen to be born.

By doing so, this vast crowd of talented people will increasingly compete with each other, continuously upping the stakes for what it takes to succeed.
It seems that this will impact all of us in three ways – the hollowing out of work, the globalisation of virtual work, and the rise of the ‘transnational’.
