Public Thinking | Taking the Next Step
Humanity is about to enter a new economic and cultural paradigm—an Age of Ideators.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution's promises to release vast amounts of labour by means of smart production and logistics. With this critical development our creative minds and ideas will be finally liberated from the time and resource constraints of the past.
However, every such opportunity brings new challenges and responsibilities. And while creative problem-solving was always central to the human experience, the social practices around public thinking and co-operation had to slowly evolve through bursts of technological innovation and concomitant political transformation.
Our shared struggle to perfect the instruments of public thinking is not over. The political elites' established platforms and the social media available to the general public today are much better at promoting ideas and responses than contributing to their actual development.
In other words, the key problems we face in public thinking today stem from numerous design, resource, and business model constraints. Nevertheless, given the bright horizons as well as the emerging existential threats of the 21st century, we must grow up to the challenge and take the next step in the right direction.
At Pericles Technologies, we firmly believe in people and their immense capacity to learn from one another. So we will empower them with easy access to the state-of-the-art on a truly vast range of issues as well as deliver the secure and convenient digital ideation tools they require to truly flourish together.
