The future isn’t written, but it is heavily foreshadowed.
In this, and future issues, we’ll tackle some topics that have been echoing curiously in recent weeks. Over six months (June through November), these topics will be poked and prodded until some mystic truths arise from the smoke.
We’ve built machines that can “think.” Have we outsourced our ability to participate?
The internet created new ways to communicate, bringing a far-flung humanity closer. What other ways do we globalize?
As we have digitized our lives, the nature of privacy has changed. What is the value of privacy, and what can it become?
Automation is a way for humans to multiply their efficiencies, but how do we know we’re multiplying the right things?
The digital space is flattened by the internet. Are lightweight flying robots a way to flatten physical space?
Economics, the study of scarcity, is a lens to view how we interact with what we have. How does economics hold up to the intangible and infinite?
Got an idea for a story? Want to suggest a link?
We’re always ready for more.
A monthly zine. New topics monthly. Context for the future.
