Estamos en una época de aceleración y vale la pena repensar estas nuevas formas de comprender estos términos

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, August 10, 6:29 PM

An interesting compilation of terms.  Perhaps most interesting to me is the utter "out of touch" aspect of some of these terms.  Most of very human/wealthy human-centric and are likely to be niche terms at best.  Only the "anthropocene" and "mule" really seem to stretch beyond our wealthy, western lifestyles.  Nevertheless a good read to stimulate your thinking about what the future may bring.

 

Thanks to Szabolcs for posting!
