Talking about Thick and Thin Futures
After my hour-long talk at Media Future Week '13 last week in Almere, I had a chance to sit down and talk briefly with Monique van Dusseldorp about some of the key themes of the talk, about thick and thin depictions of the future, developing skills to anticipate and model possible futures, and big trends. The video for the full length talk, Beware of Flat-pack Futures, is here, and slides and a recap (in Dutch) are here. Hat tip to Noah, Justin, Tobias, Anab and Jon for their thinking, which I blended into the talk, and thanks to the MFW team and students for an enjoyable few days. Be sure to check out the students' work throughout the event as well.
