Understanding the Accelerating Rate of Change:

Kurzweil and Meyer: “We’re entering an age of acceleration. The models underlying society at

every level, which are largely based on a linear model of change, are

going to have to be redefined
. Because of the explosive power of

exponential growth, the 21st century will be equivalent to 20,000 years of

progress at today’s rate of progress; organizations have to be able to

redefine themselves at a faster and faster pace.”
