I recently had the opportunity for a generous exchange with Ron Worman of The Great Conversation. He asked me about time travel and off we went. We stopped recording but actually kept chatting for another hour. It was a delightful exchange.

Applied Experiential Futures
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step into the future? The social science field known as Futures allows you to do just that. Through research and data collection, trained analysts can ‘find’ possible futures through foresight tools and determine what to do to prevent or enable those futures through methodologies called Futurecasting and Threatcasting. At the Applied Futures Lab have created a fun futures guide to share some of the tools we use to help folks find their many possible futures to head straight for their desired outcome or steer clear of potential disruptions.

Art that Pops
In 2005 I ran into a friend from graduate school on the streets of SOHO in NYC. She worked at Scholastic at the time and we exchanged contact info. A few days later she contacted me and asked if I would create a kid’s creativity book for the Scholastic School Book Fair program. The requirements were few, mostly I just needed to create a book filled with imaginative tutorials including step by step images. I created this book and it was published in the Spring of 2006. It sold at school book fairs for a few years until it was retired.
Because this text is no longer available to purchase through Scholastic I have scanned it and am sharing it as a downloadable PDF. In a time of Covid-19 sheltering in place we need ideas to use our imagination. These are fun projects for kids and adults. Enjoy!
