Like an irresistible force of nature, the digital economy has been thrust upon us suddenly and awkwardly, leaving many unprepared. Instead of resisting the generational gap between analog Boomers and digital natives, mainly Generation Y, when not flow with the cacophony of the invention, new technologies, and methodologies of working and listen to the battle cry of a new generation who operates more like entrepreneurs than employees?

This wide-ranging discussion provides an entirely new perspective on the major factors affecting business today.
