For the last few years, we have made it a hobby of charting the pace, speed and rationale for fast-rising movements and massive changes in crowd behaviour, It’s actually surprising how little emphasis the new world places on the history of its big shifts and how future mistakes can be avoided by understanding them. For the things that we have been most curious about, we have chased down the real numbers to look at patterns. In many cases, we may be the sole source of evidence, having painstakingly cobbled them together from a variety of sources.  Here are 6 interesting trends we have recently charted.

We share the full history on growth, reductions and sideways shifts, expert insights, and rationale that point to how fast things really are changing. We then take our best seasoned bets on how to extrapolate these curves to benefit your audience, organization or industry. Given the wealth of these examples from the last 18 months, the conclusion is blurringly clear – “the past was fast, and the future will be even faster”. Zoom…
