Yesterday, Manav, Megha, and I went to a packed J-school event with invited guests @ericschmidt, Executive Chairman at Google, @JaredCohen, Director of Google Ideas. They are the co-authors of their book called The New Digital Age, and they answered questions from the audience -- a seemingly even mix of humanities, journalism, and engineering students. The Q&A-style session was moderated by incoming Journalism School Dean, @SteveCollNY.
Manav was in line to ask a question, but time ran out right when it was his turn. #cestlavie. Alas, we didn't get to hear the authors' take on how technology will affect the future of education. However, we did hear their take on other interesting themes... ranging from security vs. privacy, the good and the bad of the world not having a "delete" button, the global (and somewhat also, local) technology gap, and the future of robots even just 5 years from now.
