Long Now London May Meetup - The Long Doom?

From: Paul M.

Announcing a new Meetup for Long Now London!

What: Long Now London May Meetup - The Long Doom?

When: May 27,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Come along for another evening of long term chat. Please bring along drinks and nibbles to share.

As before we'll have a 10 minute presentation to get the conversation going, this time from Dougald Hine.

The economic crisis has made even the immediate future far more uncertain than it seemed a year ago - so what about the longer term? How would we adapt to a world in which economic contraction replaced
economic growth as the norm, good years taken with bad? What directions could the product and service design take in that kind of scenario? More generally, how do we get better at preparing for a wider range of futures - particularly those that don't look like an upgraded version of the present?

Dougald is co-founder and strategy director of School of Everything (http://schoolofeverything.com). His other work includes the Dark Mountain Project (http://dark-mountain.net/) and the Institute for Collapsonomics (http://collapsonomics.org/). He's spent years hanging out with people who think it's the end of the world as we know it (and he feels fine).
