Eating Dinner... in the Future

Tonight I spent some time with Michele Bowman and Sandra Burchsted over dinner and a drink at Muldoons near Grand Central terminal. I first met Michele through the World Future Society in Boston, where the local group met for a session at the Fast Company offices.

Now, the two are collaborating on the Association of Professional Futurists, a group of several hundred forward-thinking consultants and change makers. And they have a new project up their sleeve, which should launch soon.

It was a refreshing conversation. We discussed the state of futurism, Michele's vision of the three generations of futurists, the value of peer-to-peer technologies, and other topics. Keep an eye out for their new initiative. I'll be sure to announce it as soon as it's ready for primetime (rumored ETA: in 10 days).
