Bees and Humans - by Thanh Nghiem [Reading report] by Raphaël Saillant

2011-06-07

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011.

Manhood consumes more than the planet can offer, and it is comparable to the Titanic sailing straight to the iceberg: it is time to change direction! The solution will not come from the top: we can find these solutions at the bottom of the pyramid, like hackers do, to solve the problems we face, and draw roads to an open world that we control: “The machine is us!”
