The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed – William Gibson.

The best way to predict the future, is to invent it – Alan Kay

This blog inhabits the territory between these 2 quotes.  At one end, this blog seeks to point out and document future trends and possibilities, that may not be not widely known or discussed by the general public.   These selections touch on my interests, and form the grist for my mental mill.

In addition to the above, this blog will also try to springboard from these precedents and antecedents and postulate possible futures and/or figure out the means and methods to bring these future aspirations into tangible reality.   Even though there are a lot of dreams and aspirations out there, the real trick is to collate and orchestrate all the disparate ingredients of community, environment, business, materials, means, and methods into some form of reality.

At the beginning, I will gather info on three areas of focus:

1)  Trends in Retail/Restaurants/Branding

2)  Incubators/Coworking/new modes of business

3)  Fabrication:  closing the gap from thought to reality
