RSA Minimate: 
Climate Change and the Future of Humanity 
David Wallace-Wells 
Global warming is the existential challenge of our age.

  • An audience assembled, texting to each other.
  • And texting to performer.
  • The audience can make requests.
  • The performer can read the texts and join the conversation on the stream.
  • More like a nightclub than a TV show.
  • The audience doesn't just watch--it participates.
  • The performer is part of the audience.

2021 BZ: Where will the digital generation have meetings? Business meetings? B2B? Conventions? Conferences? Will they travel to meetings if they like to work at home?


Where will the digital generation have meetings?    
Business meetings? B2B? 
Conventions?  Conferences?   
Will they travel to meetings if they like to work at home?
As people get used to working online, many will see the advantages of online meetings.
Virtual conference

The COVID lockdowns created a lot of new digital citizens.

  • Some of them want to work on the internet.
  • Many of these may prefer online meetings.
  • No infection worries, no cost, no travel time, no hanky-panky. 
  • Online meetings will thus cater to a different population. 
  • The traditional presentations of F2F meetings can be live-streamed.
  • Thus they can reach a larger audience that would not come to the F2F meeting.
  • But such F2F meetings can have parallel online meetings.
  • With online networking, online breakout rooms and online vendor rooms.

The growing population of digital citizens
