Inside Minority Report‘s ‘Idea Summit,’ Visionaries Saw the Future

Inside Minority Report‘s ‘Idea Summit,’ Visionaries Saw the Future | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

The year was 1999, and Steven Spielberg was preparing to turn Philip K. Dick’s short story “The Minority Report” into a $100 million action movie starring Tom Cruise. There was just one problem: The story was set in the undated future, and the director had no idea what that future should look like. He wanted the world of the movie to be different from our own, but he also wanted to avoid the exaggerated and often dystopian speculation that plagued most science fiction.

 

Instead, he wanted his film to be a realistic depiction of how things might actually look in 50 years. So Spielberg convened an ad hoc think tank: He invited a small group of the foremost thinkers in science and technology, along with a handful of people involved with the movie, to hang out for a weekend and talk about the future....

 

To mark the 10th anniversary of Minority Report‘s June 21 release, Wired spoke to more than a dozen people who were at the so-called “idea summit” that delved deep into the future. As participant Joel Garreau recalls, “I don’t think many of us knew what the fuck we were getting ourselves into.”

comScore and the Coalition for Innovative Media Measurement (CIMM) released the results of their latest market study, revealing several new findings about the viewing habits of consumers who engage with media brands across multiple touch-points.

 

“While TV remains the leading media channel, once TV-centric media brands now engage with their consumers across a variety of digital touch-points. While this enhances the quality of brand engagement, it also increases the complexity of media planning and analysis by orders of magnitude,” said Joan FitzGerald, comScore VP of TV & Cross-Media Solutions....

Thrilled to have an article "Nuit Blanche & Transformational Publics' in the latest Issue 45: Civic Spectacle Public Journal

Thrilled to have an article "Nuit Blanche & Transformational Publics' in the latest Issue 45: Civic Spectacle Public Journal | The_storyFormula: story worlds & wearables! | Scoop.it

Edited by Jim Drobnick and Jennifer Fisher /

 

This issue of PUBLIC considers how large-scale events have challenged conventional understandings of audience, spectacle, and what it means to “view” art. The recent success of Nuit Blanche, for instance, breeds a paradox: in one night, the number of visitors often surpasses the attendance at major art institutions for an entire year. Despite such numbers, this popular exhibition format has so far yielded limited scholarship, which PUBLIC 45 seeks to engage.

 

This issue on Civic Spectacle analyzes the greater context of performances that includes the time-honoured cultural forms of festivals and parades along with more spontaneous and oppositional events, such as flash mobs and activist interventions. Indeed, beyond Nuit Blanche, these types of civic spectacles respond to a situation of urban crisis: the loss of sustainable jobs as tourism and service industries replace manufacturing, the weakened political clout of cities as suburbs and exurbs become wealthier and more populous, and the challenges to retain a sense of community in the stressed circumstances of the downtown core.

One-on-One with Bill Gates: ‘Why Aren’t There Protests Every Day?'

 

Hi-Tech Revolution Has Given Inner-City Schools Equal Access. Now, Microsoft Billionaire says a Revolution of a Different Kind is Needed to Give Students a Fighting Chance

 

By Kevin ChappellTo Bill Gates, the digital divide is so yesterday, and unfortunately, so is the Civil Rights Movement.

 

The American icon who made billions revolutionizing the personal computer, says that price drops in technology have meant people of all races and at virtually every point of the socioeconomic spectrum, have access to the Internet and the equipment needed to tap into it.

So 10 years after starting the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation—and deciding to put billions into improving education in America—he knows that access to technology is no longer the issue. How we use that technology in the classroom, and whom we hire to teach are.

 

America’s public school system, particularly in the inner city where dropout rates top 50 percent in some cases, is failing at both.

 

“That’s when you say, ‘Oh, my goodness! … This is a stark situation,’” says Gates of learning that some schools were little more than dropout factories, even though low-cost technology was supposed to be the great equalizer.

 

In fact, once Gates got over the shock at the continued disparity in the education system, he says he got angry. Now, he struggles to figure out why Blacks, particularly in inner cities, aren’t also mad as hell and ready to pound the pavement for change. “Why isn’t there outrage, absolute outrage over this issue? Why aren’t there protests every day? I don’t understand,” he says. “Why wouldn’t this activate people the way that it did during the Civil Rights Movement?”
