Overwhelming complexity makes this a challenge. Embrace complexity as your guide through the digital darkness By Adam Tinworth Digital has not — and cannot — lead us to an utopia. So, how do we navigate the darkness of the interconnected world? Big Questions By Martin Recke We shouldn't be afraid to ask big questions and work on answers. So what's beyond our universe? The digital revolution that’s coming from Africa By Adam Tinworth Different cultures, different demographics - and a different infrastructure base mean that Afirca could be the next great powerhouse of digital innovation. The Digital Parallel Worlds of different generations By Adam Tinworth The world can be divided in two, right? Those of us who had to learn digital, and those who have known it their whole lives? Wrong. The truth is much more complex… Light and Darkness By Martin Recke Is a New Dark Age upon us, as James Bridle insists? There is a certain dialectic of enlightenment at work that persists into the digital age. VR has made us blind to the true potential of spatial computing By Adam Tinworth We’ve been brainwashed by the movies of the 80s and 90s to think that spatial computing will be delivered via glasses.

The paperless office isn’t an ideal: it’s a nightmare By Adam Tinworth The paperless office hasn't arrived yet, despite decades promising that it's just round the corner. We should be glad of that.

Solving the challenge of digital overwhelm: attention management By Adam Tinworth Transformational technology has always triggered change in multiple parallel fields. But, before now, we weren't constantly exposed to information about it. How do we focus when there's more change that we can track? Quantum Realms: why predicting the next major innovation is so hard By Adam Tinworth Quantum computing is potentially the next great wave of innovation - but it's in the pre-product, pre-consumer stage, so it's hard to understand.
