In the first of a three-part series,Phil and Stephen discuss The Possibility Explosion, one of three radical transformations that are reshaping our world and our lives.

  • Read virtually any book that’s ever been in print
  • Send and receive an unlimited number of messages with people all over the world
  • Take any of thousands of free college courses
  • Place an order for virtually any imaginable product or service
  • Listen to an amazingly wide assortment of music
  • Watch any of thousands of movies and TV shows
  • Write a paragraph or an article or a book and share it with dozens, hundreds, or millions of people
  • Record and distribute music
  • Apply for a job (or dozens or thousands of jobs)
  • Launch a business
  • Produce and distribute a movie or TV show

The possibilities are…explosive!
