Great insights on designing for/in the future:

"Made in the Future is an effort to capture our musings about what a not-so-distant tomorrow might look like. Our tools—faster, cheaper, and more out of control than ever—have triggered seismic shifts in how we design, manufacture, and distribute. And that has us asking lots of questions: What new tools or technologies will we create? How will they change the way we behave and learn? How will they shape our world?"

"I once thought that as civilisation progressed, so did our concern for beautiful things and places. We saved more, studied more, taught more, conserved and appreciated more. I was wrong. Museums are richer, universities bigger and property values higher in historic places. But pressure of population means that the visual richness enshrined in buildings, cities and the countryside is more at risk than ever. Money talks. The planning regimes that should channel profit to where it is least destructive are ever more corrupt."

"In fact, to call what the devices we have now 'smart' seems laughable when compared to this not-so-distant future where the technology just recedes into the background and takes care of things without even asking. 'They’re advanced, but in some ways they’re not advanced whatsoever,' Her’s production designer KK Barrett told Wired. 'They need too much attention. You don’t really want to be stuck engaging them. You want to be free. Everyone says we’re supposed to have a curved piece of flexible glass. Why do we need that? Let’s make it more substantial. Let’s make it something that feels nice in the hand.'"

"Because trade has alleviated the need for agricultural productivity, cities can develop despite enormously poor hinterlands. This creates both an opportunity—the ability to escape terribly poor rural land—and a challenge. Massive cities can develop at far lower levels of income as we see across the world today."

"Most children have no idea what they’re consuming in these stories; internalizing their messages is just as much a part of early education as any classroom curriculum. In that regard, Maleficent isn’t nearly as damaging as previous fairy-tale films. But do we really need to settle for 'not terrible'? Until we can make progressive, flawed stories that prompt meaningful discussion with our kids, the stories they’re absorbing haven’t really evolved at all."
Disney's tale of the villain from <em>Sleeping Beauty</em> could have been fairy tale morality's next great battlefield—if it had succeeded.

"This spring, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh will launch a mobility-as-a-service initiative code-named 'Project 100' as part of his plans to transform downtown Las Vegas into a creative class enclave. What lessons can we learn from this startup, which will combine car-sharing, ride-sharing, and bicycle-sharing for a monthly fee?"

"To refuse to admire, to take no interest in what distinguished others are up to, is to shut ourselves off, grandly and implausibly, from important knowledge."
