I’m calling this trifecta “DeSciTech.”
So, I’m going to do everything I can in the next 12 months to:
1) Promote the convergence of these three disciplines to see what happens
2) Use DeSciTech in my trend-watching and futurism work (and teaching)
tech talk: I’m speaking at CES this week
I’m fascinated with all sorts of emerging technologies. In fact, I will be moderating a panel discussion on Jan. 8 at the Consumer Electronics Trade Show (CES) in Las Vegas on “The Future of Wireless Devices on Airplanes.” My panelists include thought-leaders from Panasonic, Aircell, Microsoft and Emirates. Stay tuned.
the world is “squealing”
The sciences I’m most interested in right now are: neuroscience, behavioral science (especially “mood” science) and complexity science (especially “fractal” science). Here’s a link to my friend Ted’s blog, called Random Acts of Commentary. Here he posted some of our banter about complexity science, and my favorite scientific term right now: “squealing.” The term “squealing” can be used when the universe (and human behavior) oscillates between two polarities. I’m seeing a number of paradoxical trends right now, which means there’s cultural “squealing” going on, signaling that we’re on the threshold of a “critical transition” (i.e., Tipping Point). Read my thoughts on this on Ted’s blog post.
