For this year’s TechNow conference keynote speaker, we are delighted to feature Lucy Bernholz from Stanford University! Among her many duties and projects there, Lucy annually writes a report called the Blueprint, in which she makes (pretty doggone accurate) predictions for the coming year on technology, philanthropy and digital civil society.
You can download her 2018 Blueprint for free here. Lucy is expecting to have her 2019 Blueprint drafted by the date of the conference and we are looking forward to hearing a preview of her predictions for the coming year!
