Lynn University’s 2012 Commencement speaker, Peter H. Diamandis is optimistic about the future. In his book, Abundance: the Future is Better than You Think, Diamandis contends that the media’s fixation on bad news has given us a warped perspective on the world. He feels that technology is paving the way to a much better planet. We live in an age of plenty, the problems are mostly in distribution: When seen through the lens of technology, few resources are truly scarce; they’re mainly inaccessible. Yet the threat of scarcity still dominates our worldview.
