Book Launch Publicity

As regular readers of this column know, my latest book “Entering the Shift Age” was published in January.  The early feedback has been quite positive.  After spending a year writing the book and the 12 mini-eBooks it is very satisfying to get such positive initial feedback.  Though I think it is the best book I […]

The Earth Century

In a recent column I listed the Five Contexts of the Shift Age.  As stated there, while the true cliché of the Information Age was “content is king” the true cliché of the Shift Age is “context is king”.  We live in an increasingly contextual world.  The context in which we receive or consume information […]

The Coming Transformation in Education

Since the beginning of the Transformation Decade in 2010, I have been saying that education at all levels will undergo transformation by 2020.  The book I wrote with Jeff Cobb, “Shift Ed: A Call to Action for Transforming K-12”, published in early 2011, called for nothing less than transformation.  Reform is an outdated word and […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Futurist Looks at the 2012 Election

When the 2012 election returns came in, I was in Sydney Australia.  The view was high level and from afar.  This reminded me of a forecast I had made about a high level forecast of mine from far back in 2007 about the 2012 election.  The specifics of the outcome were, in fact what I […]

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 […]
