Agile Publishing Model.

Futurist David Houle

Welcome to the future!  The future of humanity and the future of publishing.

I am very excited about my new book Entering the Shift Age and the new model of publishing Sourcebooks has created, the Agile Publishing Model (APM). The APM is an innovative platform that allows authors to make their content available faster and in a more flexible format. For example, to suit your needs and interests as readers, Sourcebooks offers a variety of ways to purchase the content of Entering the Shift Age, either in individual parts (“mini eBooks”) or as a whole. (Check out “How to Purchase: The Agile Way”.) You can learn more about the APM by watching the video below.

This is part of the future of publishing. Now let’s turn toward our own future, the future of humanity.

We now live in the Shift Age, a time of transformation that will be regarded by future historians as one of the most significant periods in human history. The Shift Age is one of those inflection points or times when much of humanity will change how we live, how we think, how we interact with each other and what we do.

Health Management

If you look at the right side of all the flows you will see that global health is becoming more preventative, connected and based upon managing one’s health preventatively rather than in the reactive treatment of one’s illnesses. In the Shift Age the phrase “health care” will give way to the phrase “health management.” The connectivity, digitalization and global market price transparency so prevalent in other segments of society and economics will become central to health management. No matter where you are in the world you will be able to have your entire medical record both on your person and accessible from the cloud.

The Shift Age will be a time of ever greater health, longer life, deeper knowledge into the brain and genetics and a time when we all can become more in control of our health and well being.
