As we might have expected 30 years ago, the Internet, the proliferation of electronic means of communication and the advent of social media have revolutionised how we live life today. I can vividly remember giving a breakfast presentation then to a large audience of businessmen and women in which I'd been asked to talk about what the Internet might mean to them and their businesses in the future. I talked about the kinds of business that might proliferate in a virtual world and how online media could alter and improve business practices, such as marketing and communicating with suppliers. What I hadn't quite appreciated was the extent to which electronic media would blur the lines between work and social life - nor indeed the new forms of commerce that have emerged from online connectivity.
