Thanks to my subscription to Twine.com, i found this great website of Humansfuture.
It brings together subjects like Artificial Intelligence, Nano, Genetic Engineering, Transhumanism, etc, etc,… exactly all the subject matter for our Think Tank on Long Term Future.
From there i went on a surf “trip”, and discover The Next Big Thing, an initiative from BBC2 Open University.
They find their stuff at the Vega Science Trust.
Which led me discover the Classic Feynman Lectures that were put on line recently by Bill Gates on Microsoft Research under Project Tuva.
Microsoft Research Project Tuva presents Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman’s Messenger Series lectures within a new video player. This enhanced video player features searchable video, linked transcripts, user notes, and interactive extras.
Have a look at the 1964 lecture on “The distinction of past & future”. Dont forget this is 50 years old !
You can of course also google/bing Feynman. Here is a cool video: he starts by saying “I want to investigate everything”.
So, while the title of this post relates to future that is still 30-50 years away, it brings us back 50 years ago !
