“It’s dangerous when people are willing to give up their privacy.”–Noam Chomsky
The upcoming volume, After Shock, features 50 of the world’s most renowned futurists reflecting on the 50-year legacy of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, and looking ahead to the next 50 years. Seven of the contributors have been guests on Seeking Delphi™ This is the third in a series of repeats of these podcasts, which will lead up to panel discussion with some of the authors, on the book and the Toffler legacy.
Gray Scott is a futurist, living and working in New York City. He joined me in april of 2018 for a discussion of the issue of privacy in the digital age, on the very day that Mark Zuckerberg was testifying before congress on the that subject. Gray’s insights are keen, but also somewhat disturbing.
The day I read Futre Shock, just a couple of years after it came out, was the day that started me on the course to becoming a futurist. Here’s what I wrote on this blog when Toffler died in July of 2016.
