Futuristic Thinking | How To Discover The Impact Of New Technologies

Impact of technology

Impact of technology

If you want to know the impact of a new technology, it is much better to find people who are using it in the wrongs ways says futurist Jamais Cascio. Those people will explore the boundaries of the technology they will try everything possible. Only then, you can try to draw the impact on society. The most common mistake is asking the inventors, but the problem is, their view on the subject is way to narrow.

    I think Cascio is onto something here. This is a very useful perspective for examining the impact of technology, or even other kinds of trends. Thanks for passing it on!

      Thank you Scott, I agree this is even a good way to think about the impact of other trends. Even though most trends come from technological developments. I just clicked on your blog, looks pretty interesting, I will take some time to read it.
