I'm working on a presentation I'll be giving at the Experience Service Design event in Finland.

I'm trying show how change is a constant, it is how we grow, learn and survive. Change is life.
And the only real thread is not changing.

For one part of my presentation I'm compiling a list of threats to "business as usual". I asked people on Twitter to help me with this list. Which they generously did :-))

Please tell me if I'm missing something, or you just don't agree.

This is the list so far:

COMPLACENCY,
BUSINESS AS USUAL,
ACCEPTING THAT "BUSINESS AS USUAL" IS GOOD ENOUGH
TALKING "INNOVATION",
CLIMATE CHANGE,
INCREASING LAWLESSNESS,
UNGOVERNABLE REGIONS,

SOCIAL NETWORKING,
ONLINE COMMUNITIES,
CHEAP AND EASELY AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY,
