Jamais Cascio

Biopolitics of Popular Culture Seminar

Posted: Feb 1, 2010

Jamais Cascio (openthefuture.com) is a Senior Fellow of the IEET. He writes about the intersection of emerging technologies and cultural transformation, and specializes in the design and creation of plausible scenarios of the future. His work focuses on the relationships between disparate forces and systems, and the importance of long-term, systemic thinking, particularly regarding the environment and technological development. In 2003, he co-founded WorldChanging.com, the award-winning website dedicated to finding and calling attention to models, tools and ideas for building a “bright green” future. His articles at WorldChanging covered topics including energy and the environment, global development, open source technologies, and catalysts for social change. Foreign Policy magazine named Jamais one of the top 100 “global thinkers” of 2009.
