The world of the (very near) future will be unimaginably different. Billions of new people will join the economy and the conversation. Technologies that are currently just an idea (if that) will revolutionize society. It will be, as thinkers like Peter Diamandis have aptly described it, an age of abundance—an abundance of opportunity, health, uncertainty, and (for many) fear.
I'm obsessed with preparing myself, my kids and the people I interact with to see the upside and not fear the downside. I write the Bike to Work Blog to prepare for the post-driving world. I teach about controlling email to give us the time we need to think. This website was created as part of a website bootcamp with my kids so that we can all improve our coding skills.
