For Peter Dekom, a dry-humoured, Hollywood entertainment lawyer, the single most important factor right now in human development is the speed at which our world is changing.
Dekom, who gave the Vancouver Film and Television Forum keynote talk on Tuesday morning, likes to refer to this "diabolical change" as hyperacceleration.
What a world of difference there is in the way organizations handle problems when they are caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
While usually relatively minor, from a national media standpoint, almost every organization encounters major or minor problems each year as they have “run-ins” with the media. This is especially true today where citizen journalists can blast camphone videos or 140 character Tweets around the globe in the bat of an eye.
I don't know if it was the fact that Vancouver was under a deluge this morning, or there's just fewer journalists around these days, but the Vancouver International Film Festival media conference seemed less busy than in previous years.
