Description

What happened in Round 1 of the #FutureofWork national discussion on Twitter? /newsrooms correspondent Hilary Doyle asks David Potter with GoToMeeting in Canada and Chris Hogg, VP of content and coverage with /newsrooms, why this discussion matters for small businesses owners and to explain the surprising thing happened in social. What is the Future of Work National Twitter Discussion? Fifteen years ago, could you have believed that in 2014 your phone would have more computing power than the U.S. government had in 1969? Do you now take for granted that you can run your business from something that fits in your pocket? Technology has disrupted every aspect of our lives – and we’re only at the beginning of this revolution. As progress continues, some say we’ll soon be shuttled to work in self-driving cars while others believe we will all work remotely thanks to virtual reality and the Internet. With so many incredible technologies being developed – 3D printing, Oculus Rift – there’s no denying work and life will change again and again. But what technology or idea will have the greatest impact on the future of work? To find out, we’ve picked four big trends affecting work and business: The Internet of Things, The Collaborative Economy, Virtual Reality and Workforce Disruption. In September, they are going to go head-to-head in a series of Twitter chats. Round 1 is the Internet of Things versus The Collaborative Economy on September 8th. Round 2 is on September 10 between Virtual Reality and Workforce Disruption. The final round with the two winners is on September 12. You can join all three discussions to argue and then vote for which trend you think is going to shape the future most.
