About the book.

Tip of the Spear is a comprehensive study of the state of technology and its impact in the near term on the fate of our species. The three Laws of Disruption are at the center of the story which recognizes that:

  • The slope of the technology curve is dramatically increasing
  • The technology genies never go back into the bottle
  • and our linear systems of organization are not prepared.

"Our use of the technologies we have invented are now poised on a blade’s edge. Either the Tip of the Spear levels the playing field in the areas of Governance, Finance, and Education, or we use these extraordinary technologies to create further concentrations of wealth and increased inequality. We have a choice, we can use our newly connected planted to have real conversations, or we let it devolve into a rabble at the gate."
