    I enjoyed how the authors describe that, unlike the Industrial Revolution, the digital revolution has created technology that replaces human labor instead of complementing it. The authors urge that this unprecedented pace of innovation should both excite us and prompt us to reflect on our values and choices.

    Brynjolfsson and McAfee are right; we are on the cusp of a dramatically different world brought on by technology. The Second Machine Age is the book for anyone who wants to thrive in it.  I’ll encourage all of our entrepreneurs to read it, and hope their competitors don’t.
