Keys to the Kingdom Are Changing Hands

'The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind--computer programmers who could crank out code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers. But the keys to the kingdom are changing hands. The future belongs to a very different kind of person, with a very different kind of mind--creators and empathizers, pattern recongizers and meaning makers. These people--artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers--will now reap society's richest rewards, and share its greatest joys. This book describes a seismic--though as yet undetected--shift now underway in much of the advanced world. We are moving from an economy and a society built on the logical, linear, computerlike capabilities of the Information Age to an economy and a society built on the inventive, empathic, big-picture capabilities of what's rising in its pace, the Conceptual Age.'
--Daniel Pink, from the introduction to his new book, A Whole New Mind--Moving from the Information Age to the Conceptual Age
