Dialogues on Innovation

Hi Flavio, I want to thank you for all the useful information you share with us yesterday during the videoconference about the Third Industrial Revolution.

I found it very interesting and I learned so many things I didn’t knew about this movement, like the Smart Grid Technology and the posibility of selling energy generated in our houses to the big companies.
I had the same doubt someone asked: “Is society ready for this revolution?” and I was surprised to see the answer is “no, it’s not”.  I find it kind of controversial but at the same time it’s exciting to see we can be part of this challenge and help change the way people lives and see the world.
Greetings,
Diana Alvarez.

  1. Hello Diana

    Thank you for your e-mail and kind follow-up.

    I think it would be appropriate to comment that no community, no society, no individual is EVER prepared for change, to let go, kiss goodbye the comfort and certainty of the future that is projected from the past. Change, death, birth, happen suddenly, and nothing is ever the same.

    Our challenge as individuals, as community, as society, is to lead, embrace, love change with “kind hearts and open minds” and discover all that the future has in store for us. Think of the future as a Treasure Room in darkness, as we walk into it, and see as far as our lamps show… we realize the bounty we can collect. The ones that follow us, follow faster, with a steadier pace…. yet…. find considerably less bounty. And… those who walk into the future with their minds focused on the past…. do not pay enough attention, and do not realize all they can realize.

    Our Latin American, Mexican cultures tend to be a wee bit too much caught in the past. In holding onto things, on keeping things the way they are. We need to dare more to be the first build from what is what will be, rather than the last lingering to what was.

    Best Regards
    Flavio
