You have come to the right place if you want to future-proof your business, your job and yourself. Part of my job is to give speeches. At trade conferences, customer meetings and team events. When I talk about new markets and new jobs, every now and then after the keynote someone says: “You know, what you presented on future markets, some of them aren't the future at all, they already exist. Hm, there's a thinking error and bias behind that. You've probably heard of the S-curve … The iPhone didn't have the first touchscreen. Tesla didn't build the first electric cars. And not the first robots. It wasn't Amazon, Google or Facebook that used the first artificial intelligence. Amazon was not the first online trader, Google not the first search engine and Facebook not the first social network. Salesforce was not the first Software as a service. AirBnB didn't invent the platform business. “Times will come when our descendants will be surprised that we did not know the obvious.” Seneca said this 2000 years ago. Seneca is marking a fact that science fiction author William Gibson also means when he writes: “The future is already here, just not yet evenly distributed.” What does that mean for your business and your profession? Right now, at this moment, somewhere there are ideas and innovations that will revolutionize your business and your job. And you don't know about them.

In this episode I delve into the Cyberpunk genre for the first time, talking about William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer in particularly! I explore quite bit over how there is much more to Cyberpunk than pure aesthetics. In terms of critique, genre, and possibility, there is more to it being done, and that can be done with it, along with elaborating these questions of the genre and how we can think and critique it. I don't go over everything there is in it, but I certainly go over some of the big questions and even sneak in a bit about AI which was good fun too, enjoy!

Paolo Bacigalupi Explores Climate Change and Corruption in Near-Future Sci-Fi, “The Water Knife” In today’s episode, we visit with New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist Paolo Bacigalupi, author of “The Water Knife.” In a world where water is scarce, Angel Velasquez is an assassin known as “water knife,” in which he sabotages the water supply of his employer’s competitors. After his paths cross with climate refugee, Maria Villarosa, and award-winning journalist, Lucy Monroe, his loyalty is tested. The Los Angeles Times wrote, “The book's nervous energy recalls William Gibson at his cyberpunk best . . . But this is no pastiche; Bacigalupi weaves an engrossing tale all his own, crackling with edgy style.” Paolo Bacigalupi is an internationally bestselling author of speculative fiction. He has won numerous awards. His work often focuses on questions of sustainability and the environment, most notably the impacts of climate change. In The Water Knife, he imagines a future without water that may not be that far off.

While non-Western (especially East Asian) countries have received the harshest criticism for invasive and authoritarian measures to contain the virus, how have government responses in the U.K. and here in the U.S., for instance, expanded surveillance in the name of public health? To what extent do apps, wearables, vaccine passports, and other surveillance tech measures even actually work in  stopping the spread of COVID-19? We also add to the chorus of critiques against Governor Cuomo, specifically highlighting his call for "Excelsior Pass" vaccine passports that will ultimately exacerbate medical segregation in New York. To comment, ask questions, or suggest show topics please email:pod@stopspying.orgFollow us on Twitter and Instagram: @spy_podHere's what the Spy Pod hosts are reading this week:Agency, by William Gibson Brave New World, by Aldous HuxleyThe Dispossessed, Ursula K.

She works with leaders to integrate design thinking practices that encourage creativity, recognize accomplishments, build trust and inspire a collective vision. In 2018, the World Economic Forum identified Leadership and Social Influence as a trending skill. Sabba shares how building social influence across social media platforms can empower leaders as role models for the beliefs and values they want to see others adopt as they believe that their audience is able to rise to the occasion. As a graduate of the Global Executive EdD program at the University of Southern California, Sabba’s research focus is how design thinking can prepare individuals with the mindset and skills to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Her work is driven by a quote from William Gibson, "The future is here. It just isn't evenly distributed."

(36:07) Systems thinking and feedback. (39:22) How the outsider perspective can help Americans. White supremacy as a white person's struggle. Opposition to social justice is really resistance to progress overall. (51:00) Technology is really all about increasing collaboration. Update on "The Singularity is Near." Tool-use and brain growth. Homo habilis. Technology is what's changing the world, yet people are still blaming scapegoats. Politicians are monkey-wrenching systems. Resilience is everything. (01:06:44) Disruptive change is by no means new or unique to our time. What's unique now is the blinding speed of the double exponential. Technology as an amplifier to existing power structures. Technology can sometimes plant the seeds that will undermine future developments. (01:16:03) The fourth wave of Capitalism. Can be good as well as bad surprises. Using technology to manage technology. Neuralink and cybernetic systems. Hysteresis is a magnetic phenomenon involving delay or resistance to change, but applies to politics and technology as well. Crashing our system to stop progress won't stop progress. It just cedes the race to others, like China. If we're not careful, it will crash America, and relegate the US to developing nation status.

The Alien series is one of my favorite movie franchises of all time. Alien 3 is probably one of the more divisive films of the original three. It's on record how difficult the development of this movie was and how there were many different variations of the script. On today's episode we look at the most popular one by the father of cyberpunk, William Gibson. This script has been officially released as both a audio book and comic. Today is a look at the comic book version of Gibson's take on the famed creature feature. Written By: William Gibson Logline: After the deadly events of the film Aliens, the spaceship Sulaco carrying the sleeping bodies of Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop are intercepted by the Union of Progressive Peoples. What the U.P.P forces don't expect is another deadly passenger that is about to unleash chaos between two governmental titans intent on developing the ultimate cold war weapon of mass destruction.

Adam and Ben just watched the new film 'Possessor Uncut' by Brandon Cronenberg, son of Systems of Systems godhead David Cronenberg, and find one of the most mesmerizing works of Baudrillardian, postmodern body horror cinema since daddy Cronenberg's 'Videodrome.' Adam detects a new "futureshock narrative," as philosopher Nick Land identified in cyberpunk literature and film, from William Gibson to 'Terminator,' while Ben hones in on the film's visualization of the apotheosis of post neoliberal, PMC culture (the 'Great Reset' indeed).

William Gibson, the great American-Canadian speculative fiction author, once said: "The future is already here, it's just not very evenly distributed." This episode features a deep dive into several key concepts to navigate the COVID economy and execute the journey to remarkable. First and foremost is the idea that much of the disruption that will determine future winners and losers is already in play, though we may yet see it or fully appreciate its importance. Second, we must be careful not to fall into the trap of managing by averages or becoming overly obsessed with more traditional channel-centric metrics. The customer is the channel, the lines between online and physical shopping are blurring and we must bust the silos that get in the way of a remarkable customer experience.Our special guest is the one and only Jason Goldberg, chief commerce strategy officer for Publicis and co-host of the "Jason & Scot Show", one of the most followed and influential retail podcasts--at least until very, very recently.
