For the love of big ideas

Posted in: science- Feb 24, 2012 Comments Off on For the love of big ideas

I love big ideas. I love talking about the possibilities of science and technology. About evolution and the future. I love insights into human behavior—especially where the brain is concerned. And I know just enough about physics to think it’s mystical and sexy.

Some folks got together at a conference hosted by Institute for the Future‘s  Technology Horizons Program to explore some of these big ideas. The result: the Future of Science 2021 Map (below).

I would have loved to be a part of that exploration. I’m strongly intuitive and a great brainstormer but facts and figures are not my strong suit. I could certainly help those enmeshed in science to conceptualize. I’d be great at it (just throwing that out there for any scientists who might be reading ;-)).

So for the love of big ideas, enjoy this amazing map of the future.

It’s 6 main concepts: Decrypting the Brain, Hacking Space, Massively Multiplayer Data, Sea the Future, Strange Matter, and Engineered Evolution. It’s a beautiful compliment to Michell Zappa‘s Envisioning Technology  interactive table.
