If you're in the Concord, NH area we hope that you'll join us at the #NewHampshireHistoricalSociety. We are often asked "Why a telephone museum"? We think it's one of man greatest inventions and deserves a ton of attention, but there is more to our story than that....hope to see you on Saturday, September 29th.

7:oo pm at the New Hampshire Telephone Museum.

What is "Predictive Fiction"? It's the realization that we (professionals, public, policy makers, etc.) need to try to get a better handle on where technological change is going, and how to anticipate some of the impact of the various trajectories. A tool for doing this is a fairly constrained form of Science Fiction that speaker Jim Isaak calls "predictive" fiction.

Isaak uses stories that are built on our current understanding of science/technology and project a modest distance into the future to explore how these things may affect society.

A few examples along these lines include:

-the augmentation of human capabilities via implanted devices to transform our physical or even mental capabilities
-hearing aids that handle a wider range of frequencies, provide greater distance in hearing, play MP3 files or even translate languages
visual augmentation to see a wider range of frequencies, greater distance vision, night vision, or heads-up display of texting, web browsing, video - and ultimately augmented reality (addition of images into your field of view)

Chemical augmentation - concentration pills, memory pills, personality pills, intelligence pills, or just plain "feel good" pills

Biological augmentation - fixing disease, fixing genetic defects, adding genetic enhancements, genetic engineering from pre-conception on, etc.

-Computer/machine "awakening" into devices which appear to be conscious, intelligent, self-replicating, etc.

Predicting the future is impossible.
But we can make some educated guesses…

Our September program is going to be very interest!!

Predictive Fiction is the realization that we need a better understanding of technological changes and how to anticipate their impact.

Our speaker, Jim Isaak, uses stories that are built on our current understanding of science and technology and explores how they may affect society. Still not sure what "Predictive Fiction" deals with?? Here's a few examples...

Genetic engineering
Memory pills
Artificial intelligence
Augmented reality
and so much more....

Details are on our Facebook Events Page - #seeyouatthemuseum

Over 2.5 million people in the U.S. are involved in road accidents each year. The population of the US is just 318.9 million. At this rate, the American people could be extinct in two human lifespans. This is an astounding number of traffic accidents.
Of these, 1.6 million have a cell phone involved in them. That’s 64% of all the road accidents in the United States.
