Rewriting the world order
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and irrepressible entrepreneur, venture capitalist and socio-economic soothsayer Leonard Brody feels fine. Co-founder of über-popular citizen journalism site NowPublic (acquired by AEG), and investor in some 20-30 startups annually, Leonard is a highly sought-after speaker who has shared his vision everywhere from Stanford to the U.N. His insights have benefited companies ranging from The Financial Times to Visa to Pepsi, and the governments of India, Ireland, Israel and others. His belief that we are at a technological tipping point is central to what he, in partnership with Forbes, calls The Great Rewrite,” a profound, worldwide paradigm shift in the way we do business and, consequently, live our lives.
“We are at this place that we’ve never been before. The Great Rewrite is about a fundamental resetting of this planet’s operating system.”
