Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote about the black swan — the impossible-to-predict event that changes everything. The terrorist attack, the earthquake, the worldwide economic meltdown.
But in the world we live in now, it’s the white swan — the ordinary, predictable event — that’s becoming rare.
Black swans show up every day. Storms and disasters … and positive black swans, too, like world-changing technology.
Unpredictability is the new predictability, and the only thing we can be sure of is that the world will look almost unrecognizably different — even just a few years from today.
