Today we live in a world where the exponential progression of technology is increasingly shrinking the lag time between what we can imagine and what we can create. We are rapidly converging to become a civilization of networked minds who will transcend all previous limits. As Erik Davis wrote in Techgnosis, "When everything becomes linked with everything else, matter becomes mind"
With the coming overlapping revolutions in biotechnology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence, the instruments to remake the world will be in everybody's hands.
The challenge is to get people to think EXPONENTIALLY (rather than linearly) when leveraging future possibilities and addressing grand challenges.
Another challenge is simply engaging wider audiences to think about these types of ideas.
In a media marketplace where "attention" is the new limited resource, capturing and managing people's interest in exponential thinking is precisely what my talk will address.
