The Energy Revolution Will Transform How We Live and Work p.ost.im/6aXhR5
While the earlier revolutions empowered large enterprises, this one might very well undo them.

The impact of this change is hard to overstate.  Today, anyone can wake up in the morning with an idea, design it on CAD software, create a prototype with a 3D printer, acquire financing through crowdfunding and market it on Google and Facebook.  We’ve entered anew age of platforms, where what you own isn’t as important as what you can access.
We’ve entered anew age of platforms, where what you own isn’t as important as what you can access.
And that’s created a profound change in how we need to compete.
