Innovation Watch, explore the future.

Innovation Watch.

Innovation Watch is the latest step in a personal exploration of ideas, innovation and the future. For many years, I’ve consulted to organizations to help them understand and cope with the challenges and opportunities of change. As a writer, I’ve followed developments in science, technology and business, seeking to understand and interpret their impact. On both a personal and professional level, I’ve reflected on the dynamics and consequences of social, political and environmental change.

An extraordinary future may be coming — the culmination of unprecedented growth in human knowledge, technology that borders on the inconceivable, and a globally connected world. This future could bring exceptional gains in the quality of human life, but it will also create new discontents. And the pressures of continued population growth will place new stresses on the planet. It appears ever more likely that we will face a future of increasing scarcity, growing environmental degradation, and widening disparities between the developed and developing world.

The future will emerge from the turbulent interplay of all of these forces. Small perturbations may have a disproportionate impact, tipping the balance suddenly in unexpected directions. Innovation Watch is a personal attempt to explore the dynamics of this emergent future, through the lens of history and the insights of complex systems science.

Retro Thing brings you back in time.

Retro thing is an independent vintage gadget website run by a team of renegade elves with bases in Calgary and Chicago (any wanna-be job applicants must live somewhere that follows the pattern: Cardiff, Copenhagen, Calcutta…). Each month we present a never-ending stream of classic and almost-classic gizmos and books. OK, so I made up the bit about the team of elves. Everything else is true, though.

TriplePundit a resource on Environment

TriplePundit is a resource for you! Environment, Society and Business are a tripartate relationship – actions of one affect the others. You can’t have a succesful economy without a healthy environment and a healthy society, and vice versa. That concept is called the triple bottom line, which is where the triple part of the name comes from. It’s also sometimes called the integrated bottom line. Either way, it’s a new and broader way of looking at business and the world.

The model of the site is to be a digest of sorts. They ‘re not offering heaps of editorial commentary, just talking about things they ‘ve found valuable an interesting, and giving you a place to come and find it all. Most posts will link to more details elsewhere if you want to continue reading about something.

Every post is linked to a discussion that you are welcomed to participate in. Just click the “discus” link and go nuts.
