“We are living in the midst of a social, economic, and technological revolution.  How we communicate, socialize, spend leisure time, and conduct business has moved onto the internet.  The Internet has in turn moved into our phones, into devices spreading around our homes and cities, and into the factories that power the industrial economy.  The resulting explosion of data and discovery is changing our world.”
