Abstract: Most modern futurism describes technology-driven futures: the nanotech future, the biotech future, etc. But there's also another future, just as or more possible: the future where technology is marginalized by social and cultural forces (such as the rise of fundamentalism as a political force in the US and Middle East). This lecture talks about how technology and design can help humanity avoid a grim future.
