A Couple of ‘Rogue’ Recommendations

I want to take a momentary break in the discussion of the future price of oil, disintermediation and the Future of Today to express a personal message of thanks.

Yesterday this blog received kind words of recommendation from Stephen J. Dubner on the www.freakonomics.com web site.  As practically any reader with any amount of world awareness and intellectual curiousity knows, “Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything” is not only a best selling book, but a wonderful and unique look at the world.  Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner have produced one those books that change things.  The web site is a functional work of art that if you have yet to visit, you must.  For those of you who have found Evolution Shift because of their recommendation, I promise to do what I can to welcome you and keep you here with original writing and new perspectives.  I am deeply honored by their tip of the hat.

Evolution Shift received another recommendation this week from another author I respect, James Howard Kunstler.  He placed his recommendation on www.kunstler.com under the heading ‘other web sites I like’.  He also has another site listed on this page that you can reach by clicking his name below.  It has one of the best names in blogdom; check it out.  Kunstler is a true American Iconoclast.  His most recent book, “The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophies of the Twenty-First Century” is a smart, chilling look at what the future of a petroleum drunk America and Globe might look like.  A highly recommended read.

To have people you admire, respect and wish to emulate give your work even slight praise is just an incredible feeling.  To have friends and, new blog friends,show up regularly to read your stuff is an equally great feeling.  In the very short life of this blog so many people from all around the world have visited and subscribed – click above, it’s free and easy – that I am excited about what lies ahead for Evolution Shift.  Thank you.  It is the recommendations that you make to your friends about this site that are important to me.  Thanks to all of you who have already done so, and thanks in advance to all of you who will.

Now, as the move title says:  “Back to the Future”.

Act Now

In times of global uncertainty and disruption it takes a futurist to provide context and understanding.
