“We are all Digital Citizens now - disrupt or die!”
The final Orwellian message booms out to a room of earnest - sorry, digital - delegates at the technology conference. It’s been a super-slick presentation with all kinds of visual fireworks flickering on a screen eight metres wide; a folksy duet between two techno-mavens, with a little call and response banter thrown in to humanise proceedings. The speakers are fluid and fluent, working without notes and making much use of the relaxed body language and hand gestures they’ve clearly been coached in.
Despite my misgivings about the ultra-professionalism on display, it’s the best talk -or pitch, really - I’ve seen at this congress (I couldn’t witness my own Keynote, of course!). Frightening or compelling, depending on your point of view, with the impact of a great advertisement. Although here we’re not being sold a product so much a vision of an inevitable, “it’s already happening” future.
