You probably know a little bit about the Industrial Revolution or even the Second Industrial Revolution.

But what if I told you we’re now on the cusp of another industrial revolution, a Third Industrial Revolution, to be exact?

We’re now on the cusp of another industrial revolution.

This era will usher in a fundamental reordering of human relationships, changing the way we conduct business, govern society, educate our children and engage in civic life.

That’s the vision of the future as imagined by Jeremy Rifkin, one of the big thinkers of our time.

The bestselling author spoke with Longitudes in advance of his presentation at 9:30 a.m. (EST) on Feb. 24 in the Founders’ Auditorium at UPS in Atlanta, Georgia.

Rifkin is the first presenter in the 2016 UPS Speaker Series.  You can view his presentation by registering for the live webcast.

In part one of our discussion, Rifkin explains exactly how the Third Industrial Revolution will change our daily lives.

And finally, the author delves into the blurring lines between the physical and virtual worlds, connecting the dots behind global trends already at work.
