The Future of the eBook

Posted in Change, Disruptive Technology, Do the Impossible, Education, Higher Education

Self-Education is the Key to Your Future

Posted in Education, Quotes

The future is accelerating. The rate of change is itself changing and becoming ever faster. One of the consequences of this state of affairs is that knowledge is becoming obsolete at an ever accelerating pace. This leads to a paradox: Education is becoming both less and more important at the same time. It’s becoming less…

A Futurist Goes to the Movies

Posted in Creativity, Education, General, Metaphor

As a frequent keynote and conference speaker, I’m constantly looking for ways to connect with my audiences.
