2010 STATE OF THE FUTURE Report


I attended the State of the Future Report from JEROME C. GLENN, Futurist, Author & Executive Director of The Millennium Project, a leading global futures think tank
· Latest insights from 2010 STATE OF THE FUTURE report
· The Next Big Thing: A COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE VISION FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD: 3 Real World Applications from Global Climate Change Situation Room to National Early Warning System

I will be working with the Silicon Valley node of the The Millennium Project as they are following Engelbart’s framework of collective intelligence. (See The Engelbart Hypothesis)

Here is the summary of the findings:

If current trends in population growth, resource depletion, climate change, terrorism, organized crime, and disease continue and converge over the next 50 to 100 years, it is easy to imagine an unstable world with catastrophic results. However, if current trends in self-organization via future Internets, transnational cooperation, materials science, alternative energy, cognitive science, inter-religious dialogues, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology continue and converge over the next 50 to 100 years, it is easy to imagine a world that works for all.
