"Leapsmag is the vital new platform, illuminating all the vexing "Toffler-esque" societal issues presented by the onslaught of emerging technologies–that shockingly have no current boundaries. By providing a platform for the leading experts, writers and provocateurs, we now have a forum for thoughtful consideration and discussion, so that we might try and prepare ourselves for the unknown."
