Seeking Delphi™–Podcast #24: The State of The Future with Jerome Glenn

The future ain’t what it used to be.”–Yogi Berra

“We’re doing a lot better than people think.”–Jerome Glenn, on The State of The Future.

Ah, you have to love Yogi.  He had no idea what he was talking about.  But–surprise, surprise–the blind squirrel does occasionally find a nut.  Because the future and all of its possibilities–its challenges and opportunities–is constantly changing.  Just ask Jerome Glenn and his colleagues in Millennium Project,  who have issued 19 editions of The State of The Future over the past 20-plus years.  I did;  that is the basis for Seeking Delphi™ podcast #24: The State of The Future with Jerome Glenn.

  1. what are the 15 challenges?

  2. Thank you for the link.
    I liked the globe and all the eliptical connections, very clever!
    However I have a few thoughts on the list of 15 questions. The list is a bit cringe worthy. The way the “challenges” are stated as questions implies that there is an expected answer. My mother employed this method to get me to do the dishes, “Would you like to do the dishes now?” Why don’t “they” say what “they” think is required under these HEADINGS or is the challenge NOT to sound like an elite bunch of world builders?
    I think if they changed the “Status of Women” to “equity between the sexes” it would sound like there were a few women making up this list. “11. How can the changing status of women help improve the human condition?” -Making it better or worse? There is no mention of equity, or improvement so is it implied that the “human” condition is dependant on one sex being lower or higher in status?
    (I must say, there is a lot of great fodder for some speculative fiction here, thanks!)
