Political scientists Ayesha and Parag Khanna (whom Esquire magazine calls of the 75 people who will influence the 21st century) declare that we are rapidly moving from a point of co-existence with technology to a point of co-evolution with it. In the Hybrid Age, technology is ubiquitous (with trillions of sensors coating our environment), intelligent (devices communicating with each other as well as with us), and social (encouraging us to develop emotional relationships with it). In the Hybrid Age, technology no longer just processes our instruction; it has its own agency, and we respond to it as much as it responds to us. What is means for societies and individuals, as well as communities and nations, is truly world changing. How will we respond and adapt?
