The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy by Jeremy Rifkin

In February 2015 I had the honor of taking part in the Stormkast conference in Bergen lead by Anders Waage Nilsen and financed by the Sparebanken Vest, this was the most profound conference on our digital future that has ever taken place in Bergen; Jeremy Rifkin was the main speaker of this conference, This is his message:
