The Great God Pan Is Dead: Creatives in a Post-Industrial Society

The Great God Pan Is Dead: Creatives in a Post-Industrial Society | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

My next stop was a place I had never heard of, Pioneer Works Center of Art and Innovation, down in a neighborhood in Brooklyn called Red Hook. I was going to see a show of photos by Mark Hogancamp. I got on the number 4 train on the Upper East Side and took a long ride to downtown Brooklyn. From there, I got on the B61 bus. No subway went anywhere near Red Hook, as far as I could tell. But the bus put me within a few blocks of my destination. It was along trip--I hoped it would be worth it. It didn't seem like an especially artsy neighborhood at first glance, and I almost walked right past the anonymous red brick building that houses Pioneer Works.

The future of transportation: How humans will reach an average speed of 250 mph | Impact Lab

The future of transportation: How humans will reach an average speed of 250 mph | Impact Lab | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Tube transportation - ET3 By Jared Lindzon: The average transportation speed of American citizens was 4 miles per hour in the year 1850. The primary mode of transportation then was a combination of walking and horse back.

By 1900 that speed doubled, thanks in part to the expansion of rail lines, to 8 miles an hour (12.8 km/h). By 1950 the proliferation of automobiles extended the average transportation speed to 24 miles an hour (38.6 km/h), and by the year 2000 airplanes were used widely enough to bring that speed up to 75 miles an hour (120 km/h).

“If you follow that trend line, by 2030, we should be reaching speeds between 225 and 250 miles an hour [or between 362 and 402 km/h], on average,” said Thomas Frey, an author, public speaker, futurist and founder of the DaVinci institute, a non-profit futurist think tank. “We ask the question ‘how can we possibly reach speeds like that?’ and so we start looking at the technologies.”

Biggest drivers behind digital transformation - raconteur.net

Biggest drivers behind digital transformation - raconteur.net | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Increasingly, at work, people expect the same slick, powerful technology and the same efficient, flexible methods that they’ve become used to as consumers. In short, they expect to work the way they live. “Improved customer experience” is the benefit that organisations most frequently gain as a result of adopting digital technologies; 40 per cent named it among the three most significant gains . This statistic is consistent with an idea that has gained currency in recent times, that “data is the new oil”. In the past, companies might have relied on hunches and small, not necessarily representative, focus groups to shape their products and services.

8 Talks on the Future of Cities from New TED City2.0 Site | Impact Design Hub

8 Talks on the Future of Cities from New TED City2.0 Site | Impact Design Hub | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

In 2012, The City2.0 was the first idea to be awarded a TED Prize. The City2.0’s aim was to become “an ever-expanding network of citizen-led, scalable experiments” where individuals and communities around the world would engage  through “editorial content, a shareable project database, tools for local engagement, and resources for executing ideas.” Nearly two years later, TEDCity2.org relaunched to meet it’s mission more succinctly. Designed by Kiss Me I’m Polish, the revamped site contains new talks on housing, education, and food; videos on 10 local projects that received funding; and resources for those hoping to spark change in their own cities. To help get you started, the TED Blog has identified 8 fantastic talks on the future of cities that missed the TED.com circuit.
