Resilience

So,
Andrew Zolli, author of Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back, is part of an association of change agents who have gathered together under the name “Pop Tech.” Andrew “curates” conferences which draw presenters from mostly-isolated “silos of excellence” together with knowledgeable audiences to foment resilient responses to the world’s challenges. Part of what comes out of the conferences are “Popcasts,” short videos on resilience I have found quite engaging. Most of his Popcast presenters would “pass” in the establishment mainstream. I take great hope in the fact that the U.S. mainstream has a group of people who are looking at “The Great Disruption” and trying to get smart about responding to the major systems changes.
