Meyer, the founder of Monitor Talent and author of four books including the forthcoming, Standing on the Sun: How the Explosion of Capitalism Abroad Will Change Business Everywhere, has long been an innovator in the area where economics and technology intersect. He has been thinking about digital convergence since the ‘80s, before most of the world even knew what digital was. He recalls the days when his terminal connected to a time-sharing network with an acoustic coupler—a telephone receiver stuck into two rubber cups.
