Thinking About the Future

A non-futurist uses tools available to any of us – children’s games and toys, the research and development of vice industries, and military R&D – to suggest likely changes in the future. Biotechnology, nanotechnology, the advent of a trans-planetary society and the colonization of the solar system through telerobotic and human exploration, all play a part in suggesting that your children and their children will face some astonishing challenges.

This talk sounds like science fiction but it isn’t. A man with a proven track record of getting it mostly right illuminates what is likely to come.
