What does the future of interaction look like between people themselves and between people and their environment? Augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence can be playing an increasingly important role in blurring not just our real relationships with virtual relationships, but even our physical perception of the world around us with the virtually enhanced perceptions of everything around us. While Facebook is striving to become a leader in this augmented world, each individual will need to ask the age-old question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, "What is truth?" as a blurring variety of realities will be presented.
Futurists are always mindful of the story about Cassandra. To remind us, Cassandra is the princess in Greek mythology who was both blest with perfect foresight, and cursed by the fact that nobody...
Rudolf Kabutz's insight:
Media specialists are greatly skilled in communicating. Futurists specialise about understanding the future. When both work closely together, then media production houses become more informed about telling storing that are relevant to our human future, and futurists learn to tell better stories about the future. How could you help communicators with better futures, or futurists with better media?
What do really brave technical engineers do to enable others to enjoy their media? They free-climb up broadcasting towers of a height of 539 metres, which is higher than the Empire State Building and the Sears Tower! This "scary" video shows you how it's done!

"The most common style of public speaking, one that’s often used by politicians and is surprisingly common among investment pitches, is based on sentences. At the end of each sentence, the voice goes up a bit, the speaker pauses, as if waiting for an applause line.
I’ve even seen corporate CEOs be trained to do this, mostly because they lack the guts to trust themselves and their audience. It's my least favorite part of the Techstars pitch training, in fact.
