Bay Area Futurists Intelligence Explosion 2018
This year will be something of an experiment! We're hosting a live virtual summit from 5:56pm to 6:56pm PST, with up to ten 5-minute talks on the future. The idea is to cram as much useful or interesting insights into the future into one hour as possible. Talks will be crowdsourced from the community. So if you're reading this, then you should give a talk. They can be on any topic related to the future. Big or small, serious or silly, it's your call. Just educate and/or entertain. Add your proposed talk or vote for your favorite talks here ( We didn't get enough talks/votes for 2017, so let's make it happen this year! Following the talks we'll switch to Google Hangouts for guided discussions. Email James if you'd like to lead a discussion. Or if you're in SF and want to organize an in person happy hour, let me know. More information will be posted closer to the event. Mark your calendars. 2016 explosion ( / 2019 explosion (

What we're about

Public Group

Meet and learn from other futurists in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We engage with the hot topics: futurism, foresight, humanity+ (H+), transhumanism, longevity/life extension, lifehacking, self-modification, robotics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the Technological Singularity, and many others.

This is a 100% flat organization. All members are invited to host events for the Bay Area Futurists community. Talks, workshops, hackathons, movie screenings, company visits, parties, group trips, and other types of events are welcome. It’s your community, so make it what you want it to be. Ideally we'll host at least one event per quarter.

We're especially interested in inviting leading futurists from around the world to speak. If you know of someone that might be a good fit, please invite them.
