Event Details

Forecasting the Future of Science and Science Communication

Imagine a world 10 years in the future that has always-accessible high-powered mobile internet, where most of the world's information is open access and access to all kinds of lab equipment is a factor of 10 cheaper.

What will happen in that future? Let's explore the answers together in an interactive forecasting exercise in which we collectively imagine and build that future. The exercise will involve a lot of writing on the walls so be prepared to spend most of the time walking about the room reading, reflecting, and writing. It's a case where no idea will be too far out—in fact, we want the outlying ideas!

We'll capture the recorded information and make it available afterwards to help guide us all in thinking about where we want to go with ScienceOnline Bay Area.

Also, this month we're introducing lightning talks at the start of the session. Up to three people will have at most a strict two minutes each to present or demo an idea relevant to our Science Online Bay Area community. If you want to present one of these, get in touch with David (@physicsdavid) as soon as possible!
