Future Here Now, February 24
Lots of things to look at. If you can actually see.
Welcome to Future Here Now, where we discover how the world around us is changing, how that’s affecting our communities, and what we can do to help the places we care about thrive into the future.
In this edition:
Coming Soon: Sorry, your eyes get no customer support
If the implant that gives you vision fails, but the company that made it is dead, is that an externality? How do we manage these in a future where business-driven products and your own body tangle together?
Local Learnings: A new type of plan. A directly useful one.
Planners often get accused of making plans that sit on shelves. Philadelphia is doing one that should make a big difference in how people participate in the Fusion Economy. Hint: it deals with actual humans, not just stuff.
To Do Now: Look at stuff. Solve problems better.
We know that a key challenge of problem-solving is getting out of the box of our current, sometimes unseen assumptions, and coming up with something truly new. Turns out your local museum (or living room) might be able to help.
Plus, you get a sneak peak of the Rucker Memorial Art Collection. Most messes cropped out.
