The Fourth Transformation is based on two years of research and about 400 interviews with technologists and business decision makers. It explains the technology and product landscape on a level designed to be interesting and useful to business thinkers and general audiences. Mostly it talks about how VR and AR are already being used, or will be used in the next one-to-three years. It explains how this massive and fundamental transformation will be driven, not just by Millennials, but by the generation following them, which the authors have named the Minecraft Generation.
I was lucky enough to be sent a review copy of “The Fourth Transformation” by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel. I’ve just started reading it, but I can already tell that it will provide many insights into this new technological landscape. A full review will follow.
