An interesting attempt to visualize the ‘trends‘ (whatever that means) of 2009, from What’s Next. I personally find it poorly designed (resembles a virus of some kind, and not a computer one), and also dubious content-wise (it’s more a collection of buzz-words arbitrary grouped, than an analysis
of the possible futures). I nevertheless hail it as the attempt in the ‘right direction’, towards a more more powerful tools to visualize the transitory states between the now and the futures. I tag it ‘mandalizer’.
PS: Any scheme of the possible futures that does not mention one &#$@ing time ‘playfulness’ is basically a rubbish.
PPS: Worth even, this one mentions ‘fantasy’ once, but immediately adds “& escape”. A shame.
