The future will be inhabited by people who live much longer lives than we know today, lives potentially without end. How will society cope as parts of it begin to think along much longer timescales than ever before? What does it mean for creativity and copyright when creators last as long as their creations? How will the discipline of product design evolve as humans evolve to last forever, and what lessons can we learn today?

In five years’ time, kids will look at everything you and I are making today and think it’s unconscionably lame, and if you don’t think that’s the most fun thing in the world then I don’t know what.

If you want to know about the future, ask a neurotic person. No one thinks about the future more than they do.

Emerging manufacturing techniques like 3D printing are shifting the way that we make, buy, and consume products. We’re still in an era of mass production, but it is giving way to mass customization of consumer goods. What will we make in the future when we can make anything we wish on demand?

An attempt to get to the bottom of whether the future we were promised as kids — flying cars, emotionally fragile domestic robots, video phones, quantum leaping — is better, worse or pretty close to the one we'll actually get.

Now that the beautiful promise of the internet has worn off, and we understand that it is not inherently equalizing, we can begin to realize our true roles as activists in closing social, economic, and opportunity gaps. The protocols we once thought were neutral are being used by established hierarchies to reenforce and strengthen their holds, to further detriments to the people at the bottom of those structures. willowbl00 will tell a story of hackerspaces and education, of technology in disaster response and civic voices, of tempered negotiations and paced arms races. With lots of examples of deployed initiatives, their downfalls and triumphs, this talk shows the future that is being built to prevent and amend continued atrocities. The future is here, but we have to fight to make it evenly distributed.
