12th July 2012: The Foresight Epidemic

Strategic foresight expert Dr. Jose M. Ramos and colleagues have a new project that combines foresight and social media:


Experiments with social media, foresight and you (we hope!). Inspired by the work of a number of projects in the open foresight space, we are attempting to further develop social media foresight methods.  We want to experiment at the junction of social media and foresight studies to create an epidemic (or hopefully a pandemic!) of foresight thinking.


The project will appeal to fans of the film Contagion; the Anthrax album Spreading the Disease; and Richard Preston‘s book The Hot Zone.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been notified of a CDC-5 situation.
