Illustrating the future

Guest blogging at Bruno Giussani's web log, Lunch over IP, futurist Michele Bowman briefly describes the FringeHog Tags the World project, an effort to illustrate the future with your images.

Set your sights on the people,places and activities that hint at what the future might look like in 10, 20 or even 50 years -- we're looking for images of objects, activities, media, and people that give you that "aha" feeling, like the future is whispering in your ear. Than snap a photo and email it, along with a title, brief description and the location the picture was taken to Photos will be accepted now through June 15, 2007. Photographs will be geo-tagged, credited and displayed on the FringeHog Tags the World map; select photos and contributors will be featured in a book.

I'd be remiss if I didn't also point out that Bruno has written up a recent Zurich speech on innovation by Steve Wozniak, who will be appearing at the ideaFestival this September.
