Jamais Cascio - Bad Futurism @ Humanity+ San Francisco



Jamais Cascio

Adam Ford

Posted: Feb 10, 2013


http://2012.humanityplus.org
Sometimes the best way to figure out how to do something right is to explore all of the ways to do it wrong. In this talk I explore ten ways to create truly awful future scenarios, and then explain why they’re bad — and how to get it right. From “one change at a time” to scenarios as morality plays. The various ways in which foresight can go awry are often tempting shortcuts for writing about the ideas of future-building, but are ultimately traps for the unwary futurist.
