Dr. Jack Bacon - futurist?

So maybe I've just been around too many people who have said they are futurists or maybe it's that the stories are all the same - yes some information is facts so how can you dispute the facts that we are doubling our technological capabilities every 18 months!
I guess I'm also a cynic as many of these presenters - give the same speeches over and over again - and not sure how all this information really impacts my life - and what I need to do to be ready. Again my practical side comes out.

So what does the future hold? Well according to Dr. Bacon - more of the same and hence my cynicism.

I'm not trying to be disrespectful I value and marvel at the work Dr. Bacon has done. Not to trivialize his work as he has been responsible for significant changes at NASA by limiting the fuel used by 87%. He has been responsible for many significant changes that are savings dollars as well as improving environmental impact. Jack also has family that lives in Toronto.

So I have Dr. Bacon's book - The Parallel Bang - so I will read it and further delve into whether I think he's thought provoking or saying the same old, same old.
