The Transformation Decade: 2010-2020

Almost three years ago, on 01-01-10 I wrote a column called “The Transformation Decade”.  On this digital date I suggested that this decade would be shaped by massive transformation.  The dictionary definition of transformation is “a change in nature, shape, form or character”.   This means that this ten-year period will be a decade when most […]

Welcome to the Shift Age!

We have left the Information Age and entered the Shift Age.  This new age is an era of transformation unparalleled in terms of the amount of change that will occur is the next 20-30 years.

A New Book – A New Publishing Model

A New Book – “Entering the Shift Age” This has been a year of extremely productive writing for me. Long time readers of this column may question that, as the frequency of columns here has been less in 2012 than in the prior six years.  The reason is that over the last twelve months I […]

So Now What?

It is the end of November 2012.  We now know who the President of the United States will be for the next four years.   We know all about the results of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. A month from now we will know that the Mayan Prophecy did not mean that the world would end.  […]

Revisiting Some Forecasts

[ This first appeared a week ago in my Shift Age Newsletter.  ] In the first eight months of 2011, I made some economic forecasts relative to the global economic landscape.  As a futurist, that is part of what I do, as people always ask me about the future, particularly economics.  It is only fair […]

Burning Man 2012 – Part Two

In my last column, I wrote about attending Burning Man for the first time here in 2012.  I included lots of links that I highly recommend you click on if you have not yet done so as they will provide a basic understanding of and the beauty of Burning Man.  At the end of that […]

Burning Man 2012 – Part One

As noted last week, I made my first trip to Burning Man this year.  It became clear to me about a year ago that I had to go this year.  2012 is obviously a year much about the future so this was finally the year.  Obviously many other people felt that way as well as […]

What I Did Last Summer

This is a flat out apology to all my long time readers and to all of those that have signed up for email notifications in the past two months.  It has been more than two months since my last blog post.  I have never gone more than three weeks and usually post every other week.  […]

2010-2020: Europe’s Transformation Decade – Part Two

In the last column I wrote about the fact that humanity has entered the Transformation Decade and then defined transformation.  I also wrote about Legacy Thinking and how we all tend to live in the present and look ahead to the future through the conceptual filters of the past.  Both concepts were relative to the […]
