Thomas Friedman’s new book, called “Thank you for being late,” warns us about the latest crisis facing Americans called the Great Acceleration.
The Great Acceleration is about massive techno economic change and the belief that the rate of change is increasing exponentially. Now this won’t surprise anyone who was around the tech industry during the dotcom boom.
The biggest contribution to our discussion of makerspace development comes in the concept of “dynamic stability.” You can think of dynamic stability as the feeling you get when riding in a car traveling at a speed where you can’t make out the scenery as it passes by.
On the other hand, after a certain amount of time traveling at this speed you adjust and proceed as though nothing has changed.
