Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization

Connectivity is the most revolutionary force of the 21st century. Mankind is reengineering the planet, investing up to ten trillion dollars per year in transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure linking the world’s burgeoning megacities together. This has profound consequences for geopolitics, economics, demographics, the environment, and social identity. Connectivity, not geography, is our destiny. From the best-selling author of How to Run the World, Connectography is an authoritative guide to our common future. (Book signing to follow.)
