Video: The New Digital Age by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen

I feel driven to share this with you as a very interesting and thought provoking discussion on our lives and The New Digital age.

The discussion with Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen lead by Sheryl Sandberg, author of the thought provoking best seller Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead covers the huge impact the New Digital Age is having on our lives and will continue to have.

Their book has the same title The New Digital Age: Transforming Nations, Businesses, and Our Lives

The discussion covers topics including:

One
Data permanence and its impact

Two
The rights of women and the fact that (and I quote) “at some point, the men just have to give up”.

Three
How the internet is difficult to understand and how rules have to change in the digital space.

Four
How the internet empowers people but has its limitations and how we have to be aware of how we grow technology so that it is not used in a dangerous way.

And a lot more… I learned a lot about technology and it impact in different countries on a very specific level.

You can listen to this video while doing another activity since there are no slides or images shown.

I highly recommend you get a copy of the book, I will. The link to reviews on Amazon is The New Digital Age: Transforming Nations, Businesses, and Our Lives
