A Million, a Billion, and a Trillion Reasons to Care About the

Posted in Nanotechnology

If something doubles just ten times it is one thousand (1024 times to precise) larger. This is an important concept to grasp if you want to better contemplate the future. Why? Because no fewer than nine technological trends—semiconductors, data storage, bandwidth, genomics, gene sequencing, robotics, nanotechnology, brain scanning and scientific knowledge—are doubling anywhere from every…

Nanotechnology in 250 Words or Less

Posted in Nanotechnology

I was recently asked by a leading nanotechnology consultant, Rocky Rawstern, if I could say anything on nanotechnology to a wider audience but had to keep it under 250 words, what would I say. Here was my response: To those who don’t believe nanotechnology will change the world in the near future just because it…

Unlearning & the Rise of the Supercomputer

Posted in Education, Energy, Future, Genomics, Innovation, Jump the Curve, Nanotechnology, Neuroscience, Stories

Marshall McCluhan once famously said, “First, we shape our tools and then our tools shape us.” As a professional futurist, I have been trying to explain how some of our tools are getting exponentially more powerful. In turn, these tools are accelerating the advances that will soon shape our future and, by virtue of their…


A Historic Anniversary for Nanotechnology—and the Future

Posted in Nanotechnology

Earlier this month we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the first computer-to-computer communication—or what was the harbinger of the Internet. Today, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of a nanotechnology first. It was on this day in 1989 that Don Eigler first manipulated an atom. It might not seem like much but just as that first…
