UPDATES!

Hi all,

I wanted to send out an update to catch you up on the status of the blog.  First off, a big “thank you” to all my readers. I have been working a ton on some exciting projects which you will hear about soon. I plan on bringing this blog back around the holidays. I am excited to bring you some new interviews and perspective.

In Futures related news, I am excited to be co-hosting and presenting at next week at Association of Professional Futurists “Virtual Gathering” entitled Millennials by Millennials. This is a FREE online event, so spread the word, come on out, participate and have some fun.

More on the event:

Millennials by Millennials (MbyM): Wednesday, November 20th 4:00-6:00 pm EST

Read any blog, magazine or Tweet and there’s no shortage of commentary on Millennials. Everyone wants to own an insight to change our generational exchange. Entire books focus on how to motivate Millennials at work. Message boards provide tips for parents hoping to secure employment (and housing) for their college grad. These headlines and stories are focused on the near-term. But what happens when we begin dig deeper than headlines? What are the Millennials doing to create the future? What stories are the Millennials telling about themselves?

Stories can change the way we think, relate, or act- subsequently shifting our collective future.  On Wednesday, November 20th the Association of Professional Futurists (APF) is hosting a digital campfire on Millennials by Millennials (MbyM). The APF will livestream ten minute experience jolts shared by Millennials. Anyone is welcome to join. We’ve structured MbyM as part story sharing, part sensemaking session.

You’ll first hear how Millennials are shaping the future. Our presenters will share their insights, research, and personal stories in an attempt to cut through the noise. We’ll then invite you to join our presenters (and the Twitterverse) to find common themes, ask bold questions, and share stories.

 If you’re interested in joining, please register here. We also love buzz. Highlight the session via your blog or on Twitter #MbyM. Thanks!

 

Chat with you all soon!

Jason

      Great question – I will check on that. Usually the gatherings are archived for members of the APF, but since this event is open to all maybe we can get the link for folks.
