Subject: RE: [IP] Looking for "futurists"

Are they willing to consider futures in which they have no place?

Are they only looking at pop or passive futurists rather than those of us
trying to make the future happen?

Hi Dave,

I do a bit of consulting work within the telecom industry to pay for my
glorious comedy career, and one of my clients is interested in sitting
down with a few "futurists" to discuss with them their vision of the
future for US consumers looking out about 10 years.

This person should have a focus on consumer issues, a sensitivity to
(but not necessarily expertise) technology and, preferably, not be
totally off the wall (though a few of those are welcome). I don't have
any references for futurists other than Google and would like to get to
a bit more quality-controlled list. I figured IP was a good first stop.

Examples include Jim Carroll and Faith Popcorn, but there must be more
who are reputable.

IP readers can contact me at this email address.

Thanks!
