Please consider crowd-funding this project: Shift 2020 – How Technology Will Impact Our Future (via Rudy De Waele on Kickstarter)

Shift 2020 – How Technology Will Impact Our Future by Rudy De Waele — Kickstarter.

I am involved as a contributor and a funder, as well:)  My good friend and fellow Futures Agency colleague Rudy deWaele started this – be sure to watch his video the Kickstarter site.

A collaborative book including foresights on how technology will impact our future by some of the world’s leading experts (Rudy deWaele)

The story

The idea of shift 2020 is based upon Mobile Trends 2020, a collaborative project I launched early 2010. It’s one of the highest viewed decks on Slideshare (in the Top 50 of All Time in Technology / +320k views). Reviewing the document a couple of weeks ago, I realised the future is catching up on us much faster than many of the predictions that were made. I thought it was time to ask the original contributors for an update on their original predictions and new foresights for the year 2020. Additionally, I wanted to broaden the scope of this new book project and asked new contributors to give their vision and foresights on the following topics: 3D Printing, AI, Apps, Biotech, Cloud, ConnectedLiving, Consumers, Context, Crowdfunding, Data, Education, Entrepreneurship, Enterprise, Fashion, GreenTech, Health, Hyperconnectivity, IoT / IoE, M2M, Maker Movement, Media, P2P Money, Retail, Robotics, Sensors, Smart Cities, Social Media, Society, Surveillance, Transport, Wearables with global input as well as focused on emerging markets such as BRIC and Sub-Saharan Africa.
