In episode 30 of my podcast, I talk about wildcards and the butterfly effect. It is said that you can study the probable possibilities of how the future will be, by following technological trends, seeing how they reflect on society and how people use technology. Two of the things that can throw a wrench on the wheels of those predictions are wildcards and the butterfly effect. Wildcards in future studies are unexpected events that take us by surprise and have unforeseen effects on our future before they happen, like the terrorist attack on New-York in 2001 and the pandemic of 2020. On the 100 word stories side of things, we have a story about words and pizza and another about hacking a brain.
Episode 20. Is a tree the same as a burnt out chair? Is 3d printing bringing the end of scarcity? What did the gnome do to the mechanical chicken? What colors did the cards paint the roses for their queen? All this and more on this episode of My Surreal Sketchbook of reality.
