The future — a healthy future, anyway — is small, local, and connected.
The implications of this are substantial:
- Conferences that are just as good (or better) but don’t require travel
- Teaching the people you can reach (online and off)
- Aiming for sustainability and sufficiency in a community rather than extracting the most from a global economy
- And on and on
If you want to be famous, if you want to have influence, if you want to make things better … it’s never too soon to get really, really clear who exactly you’re trying to reach and serve.
