Sousveillance – With A Whimper Not A Bang

Sousveillance is the recording of an activity by a participant in the activity, typically by way of small wearable or portable personal technologies. Aug 30, 2016 Brave New World and 1984 got it wrong – a lot of dystopias do. We are the ones who are helping to build the ubiquitous surveillance system – we daily opt into it, signing away our rights and turning our devices into listening and watching devices, as we fail to read the EULAs and the small-print. We are even signing away the rights to our genetic data in perpetuity. The deluge of data on a daily basis gets...

Innovation & The Evolutionary Necessity Of Moonshots – Thinking In Futures

If You Want To Get Anywhere, You Have To Aim Higher! You can of course choose to plod along, looking at your feet, thinking only of handling the problems that confront you in the here and now.

Comic Books Don’t Need To Be Turned Into Films

Comic Books Aren’t Just Storyboards For Movies They do different things, and they bring very different things to the machinery of storytelling, and those who only ever interact with comic book stories through their movie versions are missing  out on a very unique experience. Warren Ellis has done filmic in his comic books, but he has done many other things that can only be done in a comic book. Grant Morrison, likewise, has conceived of projects that really wouldn’t translate easily. Scott McCloud in Understanding Comics really breaks it down. It is an interesting hybrid medium that is read...
