The industrial revolution changed the meaning of the word "speed" from "good luck, success, prosperity and advancement" to something that resembles machine-like mechanical speed, effectively disconnecting context from time.
This thinking was later captured by increasing focus on efficiency in industrial organizations, a model that was also adopted by our educational system to meet the demands of efficient organizations of tomorrow. As we move towards a real-time economy, social software is shifting our thinking from efficiency to responsiveness and ability to adapt. Context is once again connecting with time and as a result, our system is facing increasing pressures to change. What opportunities, challenges and new ways of relating will emerge?
