Digital technology can be transformational, but more often simply reinforces old patterns of work and life: a little more efficient, a little more interesting, yet fundamentally the same.  Covid has shown us that we can change and change rapidly, and has also forced us to reflect on what really matters.  This is an epochal moment to ask fundamental questions about the world we want to live in and how digital technology can make it possible.
