"Should be read by anyone interested in understanding the
future," The Times Literary Supplement raved about the
original edition of The Social Life of Information. We-re
now living in that future, and one of the seminal books
of the Internet Age is more relevant than ever. The
future was a place where technology was supposed to
empower individuals and obliterate social organizations.

We have been told that development is working: that the
global South is catching up to the North, that poverty
has been cut in half over the past thirty years and will
be eradicated by 2030. It’s a comforting tale and one
that is endorsed by the world’s most powerful governments
and corporations. But is it true? Since 1960, the income
gap between the North and South has roughly tripled in
size. Today 4.3 billion people, 60 per cent of the
world-s population, live on less than $5 per day. Some 1
billion live on less than $1 a day. The richest eight
people now control the same amount of wealth as the
poorest half of the world combined.

While consumers reap many benefits from online
purchasing, the sophisticated algorithms and data
crunching that make browsing so convenient are also
changing the nature of market competition, and not always
for the better. Computers colluding is one danger.
Although longstanding laws prevent companies from fixing
prices, data-driven algorithms can now quickly monitor
competitors- prices and adjust their own prices
accordingly. So what is seemingly beneficial--increased
price transparency--ironically can end up harming

Business leaders know that the key to competitive success
is smart management of scarce resources. That-s why
companies allocate their financial capital so carefully.
But capital today is cheap and abundant, no longer a
source of advantage. The truly scarce resources now are
the time, the talent, and the energy of the people in
your organization--resources that are too often
squandered. There-s plenty of advice about how to manage
them, but most of it focuses on individual actions.

"Digital networks are changing all the rules of business.
New, scalable, digitally networked business models, like
those of Amazon, Google, Uber, and Airbnb, are affecting
growth, scale, and profit potential for companies of
every industry. But this seismic shift isn-t unique to
digital start-ups and tech superstars. Digital
transformation is affecting every business sector, and as
investor capital, top talent, and customers shift toward
network-centric organizations, the performance gap
between early and late adopters is widening. So the
question isn-t whether your organization needs to change,
but when and how much.
