Unbundled

How the breaking apart of traditional, rigid structures is creating a personalized, on-demand future and changing the everyday interactions of people, politics, and profit.

About this post

Introduction

Definition: Unbundling is the process of breaking apart rigid, man made structures (i.e. bundles) into individual, atomic parts. With this higher level of granularity people are more empowered to more efficiently remix and mashup their favorite things, on-demand. This results in deeper personalization and individual freedom. This trend is happening broadly across all aspects of modern society and is causing a vast array of personal, political and professional shifts.
