Predictions are NOT the outcome. Human singularity DOES happen. More importantly, you MAKE the change.
In the following hours,we will see an overwhelming amount of predictions. Ten or maybe fifteen years ago, predictions worked. Then the hyper-speed connected world changed everything. Not only do we live in the biggest net, but it is a net of ever-increasing feedback.
There are multiple scenarios, and there is the problem of choice.
In the world of design architecture & cities, pre-visualization, and pre-market studies seems to have everyone believing that your predictions ARE the outcome. And older [mindset wise] act like kings, because they are so old they KNOW the future... seems to me like being back in the middle ages.
So instead of predicting, start taking decisions, start connecting ideas, start working... And do it the best you can with the quality you think it deserves... Loose the prejudice, embrace the infinite feedback loop and DARE change.
