CMU is pleased to host Don Tapscott, thought-leader and author of Macrowikinomics, as a guest of The Innovators Forum. Alumni and friends around the globe are invited to be a part of this engaging conversation, led by Ramayya Krishnan, Dean of the Heinz College. During the discussion, we'll learn about Tapscott's big ideas for 2012.
An author, advisor and thinker, you might say that he operates in the world behind Facebook and the global #Occupy movement. Tapscott is the leading authority on the impact of the digital revolution on business and society. The Huffington Post describes his bestselling book Macrowikinomics as providing a "game plan for all of us to fix a broken world." With transformations across the web, information technology and mass collaboration, we are all part of a new generation of interconnected individuals who want to shape the world they live in.
