Moving to One.



This blog has moved here.

The reasons were many and a long time coming, but mainly because :

We are all many things.
In my career, I've been a designer, illustrator, copywriter, creative director, author, strategist, brand guru, production designer, organizer, marketer, entrepreneur, serial founder, futurist and more...

We also have many thoughts.
My interests span from pop culture to geopolitics, the social media to nanotechnology, microfinance to clean energy, western literature to eastern philosophy and a host of new things I stumble upon everyday...

I needed to simplify.

So as far as blogging goes, I'm moving my three blogs to what I've really been focused on all along: Our Brighter Future

As far as my work, I still contribute to my startup projects, but my focus is solely about What's Next and how to get there.

I hope to see you soon at the new site simply called: RayPodder

Many thanks in advance for your support and attention :)

Best,
Ray

The Cloud - from mitmobileexperiencelab on Vimeo.

MIT's mobile interactions experiments like the fibercloud here may not offer much meaning in the way we try to understand the context of emerging data in the society of the petabyte age yet, but something about the interaction is definitely reminiscent of a sci-fi scenario of years past:

Pink Roads? What Next?




Heat sensitive paint as featured here can warn drivers of icy conditions. We already have data interpreters in nature such as seasonal foliage or clouds signifying rain, but from Ambientdevices to this type of thing, the opportunities to innovate the VirtuReal are exponential :)

VirtuReal Memory?



Move over SecondBrain, Evernote and other emerging Web 2.0 innovations in managing our virtual lives. These dorky glasses might be the start of Gordon Bell's mission applied in our VirtuReal life yet!

Ready for Mind Games?
