Occasionally you have those invitations that you not only can't turn down, but you know in an instant the answer is "absolutely yes." Here's one of those moments: I'm quite excited to say I'm going to be joining my great friends at FutureEverything in their first event in Singapore, subtitled Signals of Tomorrow running 5-13 September.

Not only will I be giving a talk alongside a great line-up featuring Dan Hill, Cheryl Chung, Sara Watson, Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino and other great folks from Singapore and around the world, I'll be leading the Innovation Lab, that will "devise imaginative ways to engage the public in envisioning the future of technology and a Smart Nation."

Bringing together artists and designers with voices from different parts of Singaporean society, this unique lab will mix foresight, participatory art, and rapid prototyping to create works that fuse critical thinking and creativity to provoke new thinking on how technology, cities and citizens can come together fruitfully. I'm also excited that this is taking place at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore, guided by the amazing Honor Harger.

Stay tuned for more info on the event, new speakers, and thanks to FutureEverything and Singapore's IDA for assembling what will be a groundbreaking event.
