e-Estonia: Reflections on Life in a Digital Society

My country – Estonia – has a very digital lifestyle that is convenient, fast and efficient. Estonia conducts its elections online, and was the first country to have paperless government.

Reflections from Ross: How the Election Changed Techonomy 2016

The plan was always to start the conference with a group discussion about the election. How could we not if our conference started the day after the election?

For me, it highlighted that no matter how much we talk about tech and its ability to connect us, it is degrading our ability to see beyond our bubbles.   More

We think of technology as using computer science, biology or chemistry. But what if we consider the corporation itself as a kind of technology? It's possible to see the corporation as a technology for organizing labor, resources and capital towards the creation of economic and social value. So what defines a techonomic company?   More

What relative powers over data will companies, governments, and individuals have?   More
