Due to the extraordinary viral popularity of two of our articles this last week, our weekly IEET readership jumped 50% above our highest previous recorded week. The two articles were IEET Advisor Gray Scott‘s concise and compelling “Seven Emerging Technologies That Will Change the World Forever” which exploded Tuesday while the two of us (J. Hughes and Gray Scott) were sitting together at the World Summit on Technological Unemployment. It now has almost 100,000 hits, making us think Gray may be stepping into the shoes of the late and missed Dick Pelletier, who also seemed to have his finger on the pulse of the futurist community. The other article was IEET Assistant Director Marcelo Rinesi‘s “The price of the Internet of Things will be a vague dread of a malicious world” which was praised for it’s eloquence by the blog Boing Boing.
Way to screw up our metrics guys!
