This Talk: The combination of IPv6, technical change and the Internet of Things applications are going to be a tsunami scale disruption impacting every aspect of human existence on the planet, with collateral impacts to the planet’s natural ecosystem.
My work: Capacity building in groups and organizations as they face pervasive technology, market, and policy disruption within the Internet ecosystem.
I am: Prof Emeritus & Senior Scholar, York University. I have lectured in economics in universities and countries around the world for over half a century and worked in ICT for development for 40 years. My work has been guided by two principles: the first is that knowledge (expertise, skills, information and technology) only has meaning in context; and the second is the use of knowledge in the quest for greater social justice.
