The move towards collaboration and collaborative economic models is becoming more economic necessity than noble aspiration. In the context of the collaborative society culture is collective diversity, not collective similarity.

Sally Applin, one of the founders of AnthroPunk, a movement concerned with how people promote, manage, resist, endure and create change, joins us for a truly thought provoking episode of The COIL. By embracing change we are giving up control of change. What breaks is a result of our actions, but beyond our control unless we create and invent – adapt change to ourselves rather than adapting to change. We’ll be looking at the world through an AnthroPunk lens as we discuss the business, technological and cultural issues that are being faced by the different generations of humanity.

Among the issues we’ll address:

  • What tools can individuals use to manage the unpredictable rate and speed of change due to rapidly adopted technological innovation?
  • What are the major change points taking place today and how are they impacting the different generations and cultures?
  • How do we effectively integrate sustainability into constantly changing business and social models?
  • As we move from a world of limited analog relationships to massive digital relationships, how do we promote elements of trust between people, brands and causes?
