When you set out to create something new today. You’re choosing to create the future. Those who innovate, create and solve complex problems define what the population will use in the near future.
VR. iPhone. AI. It’s all mind-space - created real. People have the ability to define what the future looks like. Science fiction has been doing for a long time - it’s been inspiring science, design and engineering to push existing boundaries. To create a future people dream about.
So in the end, yes, you can follow trends. You can be one of the masses. You can appeal to the lowest common denominator - but you’ll be forgotten. Those who are remembered are those who change things. Those who define what the future looks like, how it works, and how we interact with it. Remember that - and build it.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
