The MIT Press Bookstore presents Joi Ito, Director of MIT’s Media Lab, in conversation with Robert Langer, David H. Koch Institute Professor in MIT’s Department of Biological Engineering, discussing Ito’s new book, Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future, at 5:30 pm on Monday, April 3, at the Bookstore. Canan Dagderiven of the Media Lab will moderate the discussion and question-and-answer session.
The future will run on an entirely new operating system. It’s a major upgrade, but it comes with a steep learning curve. The logic of a faster future oversets the received wisdom of the past, and the people who succeed will be the ones who learn to think differently. In Whiplash, Joi Ito and Jeff Howe distill that logic into nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period.
