  1. You Don’t Want to get Hands-on with Hot New Tech

If you’re someone who just likes reading about technology rather than trying it out yourself, .NEXT may not be the place for you.

Plus, it’s all self-paced, customizable, and remote-friendly, so you can learn on your terms.

  1. You’re Not a Fan of Good Music

Or at least, maybe you’d rather sit in silence. Whatever floats your boat.

But if you do like to get down with some great tunes, you’ll be happy to hear we have some musical icons joining us for the .NEXT Show!

“Come undone” with John Taylor, bass guitarist for Duran Duran. And then, “come alive” with electric funk duo Chromeo!

In addition to fantastic music, you’ll also get an inside look at the music industry and how it has changed over the last few decades. Plus, you’ll get a never-before-seen collaboration between both artists—so be ready to jam!
