We’re already in a “retail apocalypse” – blamed on The Amazon Effect. Self-driving cars (and trucks) are only a few years out. Even the work of doctors and lawyers is being encroached upon by technology. (Cf. intelligence.org)

“I love helping to create places that foster community and enhance human potential. Better places help people be their best. And great places offer ‘accelerated serendipity’ (a favorite phrase from the coworking world). As an aside, 10+ years ago I flew to NYC to take a multi-day workshop on “How to Turn a Place Around.” Are you a PPS.org fan too?“ Leslie on linkedin.com/in/leslieschneider/, at OfficeXpats.com.
