During the writing of “This Spaceship Earth”, my co-author Tim Rumage introduced me, a non-sailor, to the concept of what a quartermaster does. We had been trying to come up with a way to take a snapshot in time of the health of the planet. As we wrote in the book:
“The Quartermaster supervises, stores, and distributes supplies and provisions. The Quartermaster is also the one responsible for making sure equipment, materials and systems are available and functioning. This not about what is preferred or desired, but what is. Therefore, in the world of the Quartermaster, if a 16 oz. glass has 8 ounces of liquid, the glass is neither half full nor half empty – it simply has 8 ounces of liquid”
David Houle, a futurist, thinker, and speaker, explains how technology, specifically cell phone ubiquity, has radically altered the notion of place in modern society. Part of TEDxSarasota's inaugural conference held on 12/12/12 with the theme "Creativity Matters" at the Historic Asolo Theatre in Sarasota, Florida.
This is Houle’s brand new general presentation for the future. Since it was first delivered in November 2016, it has been well received and is his current most in demand speech. It builds on his highly regarded “The Shift Age” and “Entering the Shift Age” presentations delivered in 14 countries since 2008.
This presentation is based on the book of the same name which was rated one of the top five books published on marketing in the world in 2014. Houle takes a high level look at the future of brands and the marketing of brands.
This is Houle's acclaimed presentation on Climate Change, and the need for humanity to develop Crew Consciousness as the only real way to move as rapidly as possible to collectively face the single biggest threat facing all of us.

Since Houle’s book “Shift Ed: A Call for Transforming K-12 Education was published in 2011 he has keynoted numerous education conferences in America, Australia and Europe.
After a quick look back at the history of privacy, Houle presents why we have lost so much of our privacy in the past decades and years and why those dynamics will continue to eviscerate personal privacy in the future.
