K D Adamson’s Key Themes

The Future Is Not A Technology Problem

Leading futurist and ecocentrist K D Adamson argues that the most important relationship we have is with the future, and the future has got stuck in the past. Tomorrow is not the technology problem that Big Future want you to believe it is, and what comes next is not the technological singularity but a liminality, when the certainties of the past have been dismantled but what will replace them is still uncertain. During liminal periods individuals have outsized opportunity to create truly lasting change, if they reframe the global challenges we face effectively.

Age of Undiscovery

The future has got stuck in the past, but old certainties are crumbling and what replaces them won’t be determined by technology

Taking the Red Pill

Most data isn’t new and it’s used to sell us stuff. Covid-19 exposed how little we really know, and the opportunity for us to change that.

The Global Syndemic

A synergy of co-occurring epidemics in economics, health, ecology and technology means our global system is about to stall

Invent Horizon

The global economy was a great start up but it won’t scale, so innovation has to be jettisoned in favour of invention.
