Emerging automation enables everyone to use high-powered computation in a wide variety of ways...What does this change? How will affect the value-chain of knowledge? Who can benefit and how?

The democratization of the global marketplace
Being global, having access to customers around the world, communicating with people across continents, executing on a global scale are no longer privileges limited to the rich, famous, political elite and large multinationals.
