We all live in perpetual information overload and a swirl of new technologies. Continuous learning is no longer an option. Learn or be lost. Keeping track of it all, fitting pieces together, is a challenge that seems to become increasingly impenetrable. Now Brian Solis of Altimeter has given us a structure to help us sort through the emerging digital universe. Thank you, Brian!
Cloud-based social, mobile and real-time technologies are the hub of the Brian Solis Wheel of Disruption.
In the first circle around the three core themes are the following seven emergent technologies and sectors:
- Big Data
- Ephemeral (content that disappears in a short time)
- 2d Screen
The second circle contains seven more:
- Internet of Things
- Virtual AI – AR (Artificial Intelligence & Augmented Reality)
Alongside the wheel are six themes implemented by these technologies::
- Alternative Currencies
- Mass Personalization
- Crowd Funding/Lending (and I would add, Sourcing)
- Anonymous/Private web
- Instant Gratification

My head already feels clearer! I hope yours will as well!
