Hello All & Welcome to Scenario Land!
Ever since I got hip to the reality of accelerating change I’ve been working to bridge that understanding to the masses. My string of efforts have included blogging, working with the Acceleration Studies Foundation on their powerful conference series and Metaverse Roadmap Project:, pitching TV shows about the future (in addition to Augmented Reality space adventures – think Big Brother meets Space Balls), and co-launching MemeBox with fellow futurist Jeff Hilford.
And now the real fun begins…
This blog, Scenario Land, is the culmination of my burning drive to make futurism more accessible to the people who just don’t have the time nor the interest to pore through awesome books like Mega Trends, The Fourth Turning, and The Singularity is Near. The intent is to strike a balance between entertainment and technical trend analysis, establishing a portal where creative and critical thinkers alike can engage the future together.
It’s a place where you can fearlessly share your thoughts on the world of tomorrow. Whether your strength lies in narrative story-telling, essay writing, illustration, composite imaging, comics, video, machinima or elsewhere, Scenario Land is a broadcast platform that can amplify your visions of the future. If you’ve got a big imagination and a desire to debate the road ahead, this is the place to make that happen.
I plan on using it to evolve my simulation of the future and sincerely hope you will do the same.
As a branch of MemeBox’s FutureBlogger network, Scenario Land overlaps with other future-focused sister blogs including The Energy Roadmap, edited by the one and only Garry Golden and Future of Gadgets (launching soon – big shout out to fellow partner in crime John Heylin). This unique system will let Scenario Land retain a unique playful voice while also its amplifying reach and inviting valuable technical perspectives from other niche focus areas.
As Jeff, our CEO, puts it, “Change is accelerating, making it increasingly difficult to envision the futures ahead of us. So our goal here at MemeBox is to create a rich, interactive playground that allows you to explore various trends and tomorrows. – Scenario Land is a key part of our growing ecosystem where people can fearlessly speculate about and debate all things future.”
Thus, I encourage you all to get in on the debate by challenging all of us with your unique vision(s) of the future. The best way to help bring about the tomorrow you see in your head is to actively communicate it and then fight to the death defending it. Scenario Land is the forum where all this action is about to go down.
So, bring on the future, and let me know how I can help bring your visions to life!
