"As always, Steve Flinn has his eyes on technology's frontier, exploring the possibilities that may define our future. In this book, he considers adaptation - advances that promise to bring people and systems closer together so that they can learn in tandem. He offers a compelling framework for how this 'learning layer' might transform organizations. Anyone interested in the Internet's evolution or its potential impact on next-generation business will benefit from Flinn's reflections." - Dipak C.

"The Learning Layer describes so well the new challenges and opportunities in knowledge management and information technology today. Most impressively, it provides a framework for how to address those challenges by integrating learning into the 'fabric of business' in effective and measurable ways. Mr. Flinn has done a superb job of capturing and processing thoughts on adaptation and learning that many of us have observed but not been able to codify." - Jamie Hatch, Knowledge Management Officer, U.S. Pacific Fleet
