The current rate of technical change is exponential, not linear. As the book Exponential Organizations by Salim Ismail explains: “Together, all indications are that we are shifting to an information-based paradigm…when you shift to an information-based environment, the pace of development jumps onto an exponential growth path and performance/price doubles every year or two”. This means that when a technical challenge is 1 percent accomplished, such as mapping the human genome, it is actually halfway to completion. This also explains why the amount of change in one year is always overestimated, but the amount of change in 10 years is always underestimated. In the Networked Society, everything that benefits from being connected will be connected.
