'Speed Keeps Me Awake At Night'

Nick Leeder, MD of Google Australia & New Zealand, on the Google Australia Blog:

One of the questions for the panel was: what keeps us awake at night? I've gotta say: the speed of our changing world keeps me awake at night. It's just mind boggling how quickly things are changing. Just take the mobile revolution: within two years we have become one of four leading smartphone nations in the world. Already over half of Australia's population call a smartphone their own. The way we consume media, communicate with each other and organise our lives is shifting dramatically.

There's also a pretty good call from Harold Mitchell: "owning tomorrow."
