I stumbled upon a fascinating set of presentations about being a technology futurist during my study of the technology singularity.
From John Smart of the Acceleration Studies Foundation:
Long, but absolutely fascinating. Some interesting things to note:
- These slides were shown at Tamkang University, Taiwan, and the US Army War College.
- Tamkang University is the top ranked private University in Taiwan, a country driving the edge of technological acceleration. They have a program for Future Studies that offers 15 courses.
- Courses in Future Studies are a general education requirement at Tamkang.
Perhaps they see something we don’t?
