A few months ago, I wrote that Facebook was doomed: that it could go the way of AOL and MySpace because it wasn’t keeping up with technology changes. Social media is becoming less social as people

This is one of the dark sides of the tech industry--you can't trust anyone with your personal data. They will sell their souls for the right price....for better or worse.

Story
Introduction

Vivek Wadhwa is Vice President of Innovation and Research at Singularity University; Fellow, Arthur & Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance, Stanford University; Director of Research at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Research Commercialization at the Pratt School of Engineering,  Duke University; and distinguished visiting scholar, Halle Institute of Global Learning, Emory University. He is author of  ”The Immigrant Exodus: Why America Is Losing the Global Race to Capture Entrepreneurial Talent”–which was named by The Economist as a Book of the Year of 2012. 

Wadhwa oversees the academic programs at Singularity University, which educates a select group of leaders about the exponentially growing technologies that are soon going to change our world.  These advances—in fields such as robotics, A.I., computing, synthetic biology, 3D printing, medicine, and nanomaterials—are making it possible for small teams to do what was once possible only for governments and large corporations to do: solve the grand challenges in education, water, food, shelter, health, and security.

In his roles at Stanford, Duke, and Emory universities, Wadhwa lectures in class on subjects such as entrepreneurship and public policy, helps prepare students for the real world, and leads groundbreaking research projects.  He is an advisor to several governments; mentors entrepreneurs; and is a regular columnist for The Washington PostBloomberg BusinessWeek, and the American Society of Engineering Education’s Prismmagazine.  Prior to joining academia in 2005, Wadhwa founded two software companies. 

In Feb 2012, the U.S. Government awarded Wadhwa distinguished recognition an  “Outstanding American by Choice” — for his “commitment to this country and to the common civic values that unite us as Americans.” He was named by Foreign Policy Magazine as Top 100 Global Thinker in 2012.
