There is nothing new about trying to guess the future. If you can do it well, you can plan with greater certainty.
When it comes to human futures, there are lots of uncertainties, many opportunities and some threats. Having a cool-headed assessment it made harder because few people have all the facts – eg, they many be strong at science, but weak on in the skills needed to see if an idea could seriously get to the market. They many be strong in terms of assessing human desires and aspirations, but weak in terms of seeing which techological possibilities have more hope than hype.
This blog spot aims to navigate through this space, pointing what is wonderful about humans, celebrating the achievements we have made and are continuting to make, and questioning the likely tragectory of our future.
