Exploring the Future in Pragmatic Ways  Our "prefrontal obsession with prediction - from astrology and tea leaves to national security forecasts and stock market analysis -- propels the nascen field of "futurology." But  are we just the latest wave of hokum-spreading con artists?

August 16 will be Worldwide Wave Back at Surveillance Day. An ad-hoc and as-yet wannabe “event.” But hey, in keeping with my ethos in The Transparent Society. Let them (the elites who watch) know that we know they are watching. That we are unafraid.  And “waving” is just the beginning of our determination to look back via “sousveillance.” And if they are nice, innocent little elites? Why then, they have nothing to hide from us!
