Vuja De: A Futurist Takes a Backwards Stroll into the World of Tomorrow

Posted in Future, Futurist

I’m please to announce the creation of a new keynote presentation. It is entitled: Vuja De: A Futurist Takes a Backwards Stroll into the World of Tomorrow. Below is a brief description: “The perfect keynote for any company, organization or association celebrating a major anniversary”! Winston Churchill once said, “The farther back one can look, the…


Please, Graph Your Future

Posted in Future, Futurist

Please take the time to read this fascinating article, The History of Technology in a Single Graph, and then spend some time contemplating the extraordinary visual below: After you have done so, ask yourself this provocative question: What’s Next? Here are some of my thoughts: Robotics, solar cells, fuel cells, rapid health care diagnostic tools, affordable gene…


A 112 Year-Old Race into the Future: Is It Just Heating Up?

Posted in Business, Future, General

On May 23, 1903, Horatio Nelson Jackson set out from San Francisco on America’s first great road trip. A mere 63 days later, he safely arrived in New York City. Today, Jackson’s journey might not sound extraordinary but remember at the time of his trip there were no road signs, no gas stations and only…


What Will the Future Sound Like? Silence.

Posted in Future, Futurist, Unlearn Strategy

In the new book, Beyond: Our Future in Space author Chris Impey describes early German V2 rockets as “screaming out of the sky at four times the speed of sound.” Does anything strike you odd about the description? With a little reflection, it is obvious that a rocket traveling at four times the speed of sound…


What Does a Good Futurist Look Like?

Posted in Future, Future Proof, Futurist

Contrary to popular belief, futurists can’t see into the future–and, should you happen to run into one that claims to have this unique skill, my best advice is to run away as fast as you can because they are flat-out lying. If a good futurist can’t “see into the future” you might ask, “What do they…


Create Thy Future, Mr. Futurist

Posted in Future

As a professional futurist, I frequently end my talks with the rather obvious reminder that no one can predict the future. I then twist this fact by flashing Peter Drucker’s famous quotation: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.” I love this idea of creating the future because it is empowering,…


Google Glass is Dead, Long Live Google Glass

Posted in Future, Futurist, Wearable Technology

Google anounced yesterday it was discontinuing it’s Glass Explorer program. Many pundits have been quick to declare both the program and the product a failure. To be certain, the technology has fallen short of many people’s expectations–myself included. It is unwise, however, to dismiss the technology altogether. As an analogy consider the world’s first eBook–Cybook Gen…

Futurist Jack Uldrich’s Predictions for 2015

Posted in Future, Future Proof

(Editorial note: The “predictions” are not to be taken literally. Rather, each is reflective of a broader technological trend that will impact and influence the year ahead). The New Tesla “Bug.” In January, Tesla’s stock will plunge 23 percent on news that an undisclosed number of its new SUV’s were hacked during rush hour. The…


Kiss the Future

Posted in Future, Future Proof, Futurist

I’m in New York City this Thanksgiving, and yesterday I went to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. One of the stranger sights was seeing “Kiss”–the Rock Band from the late 1970’s–perform. To me, it was a tangible reminder of how things once considered “fringe” have a curious way of becoming mainstream over time. As…
