Team Futures Institute 2012 Takes Shape

I’m super pleased to announce the instructional team that will be joining me for the upcoming Duke TIP Futures Institute in June. Making up the young, energetic and idea-filled crew—and tri-nations—will be newly San Franciscan Michele Perras, formerly of OCAD and MEIC, now VP of Strategy for Mobile at Klick Health, and London-based Justin Pickard, writer, futurist and Associate at Superflux, with whom I’ve recently had the pleasure of working with design futurescaping in a desert city.  

I’m very excited to be working with these folks to build an ambitious course, adding deeper dives into innovation, open science, speculative exploration of technology and quite a bit more yet to come. They bring a common interest in building brilliant futures, and bring diverse cultural experiences and a variety of intellectual and instructional kung-fu along with them. 

Welcome aboard the spacecraft, Michele and Justin. More announcements to come!
