Meetup Description: Come along for another evening of drinks and long term chat.
We'll have a 10 minute presentation to get the conversation going from Stuart Candy, who is visiting from Honolulu.
Stuart Candy is a multimedia futurist at the Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies in Honolulu and the first Research Fellow of the Long Now Foundation in San Francisco. A pioneer in so-called "guerrilla futures", both his widely read blog the sceptical futuryst and his PhD research at the University of Hawaii at Manoa are about the communication of foresight through the design of future-evoking situations and artifacts. In 02006, with colleague Jake Dunagan (now at the Institute for the Future), he started FoundFutures, a public art initiative devoted to making future scenarios experientially available in everyday life. Late last year, Stuart served as Game Master for the world?s first massively multiplayer forecasting game, ?Superstruct?, and he is currently leading development of a public alternate reality game about pandemic influenza hitting Hawaii.
