We often refer and insist on the speed of changes induced by technological, and notably ICT, developments. I shall argue that, more than speed, what matters is to take the measure of the nature, the radicality and the depth of the change we are going through : we are witnessing a change of era that has been anticipated by social sciences, humanities and art, but is now to be acknowledged and endorsed by policy-making. We are stepping definitely out of modernity. Still, both expectations from policies, and policies themselves remain framed in modern terms, and are less and less efficient in grasping what really matters for people, as the pervasive sense of "losing ground" unveils. Inspired by Hannah Arendt's Human Condition and the Onlife Initiative, I shall propose some benchmarks to step in this forthcoming hyperconnected era with intelligence and confidence.
