Tools we can't grasp

It is a privilege to live in the era we do. The pace of change is exponentially growing; new technologies and discoveries erupt daily. So many new things, and new opportunities. Humans have access to more information than ever before. Science is uncovering new possibilities that we never imagined. But there is no time - yesterday's actions have alarming consequences. The complexity of it all seems impossible, and the responsibility immense. Design has been a powerful force in all this; but how can we design in a world that changes so fast? When we can't hold our tools in our heads or our hands?
