Abundance

Paraphrasing Peter Diamandis in Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think,

Imagine a world of nine billion people with clean water, nutritious food, affordable housing, personalized education, top-tier medical care, and non-polluting, ubiquitous energy – it’s a not an issue of scarcity, its an issue of accessibility.

The inevitable, inexorable, exponential march into the future, where yesterday’s crises is tomorrow’s opportunity, reminds me of Isaac Asimov’s The Last Question. You read enough science fiction you get used to the idea that science fiction quickly becomes science fact – it is incredibly exciting, scary, empowering and strangely dis-empowering all at the same time.

Give it a listen.
