Technology does not emerge in a vacuum. It has a life cycle that is measurable. Change is ever present. It can have many personalities, creative, disruptive, distructive, evolutionary, revolutionary, change maker, even distopian. Policy guidelines, practices, standards rules, regulations and compliance can slow progress but cannot stop it. We are undergoing a technology shift, creating a revolution enabling us to do greater things to better serve the environment, society and governance. "Black swan" events are ever present and the technology life cycle is perpetual!
