I wrote this article for Times of India. It is India-focused, but the same lessons apply everywhere. Cheap tablets, connectivity, and social media have already fomented revolutions in Middle East. They are causing China to have a harder time controlling its restive population and allowing the world’s children to rise above the fears and biases of their parents. They will open up new technology possibilities and shake up industries—even in the developed world. Wait and see how innovation from the East soon reaches the West.
