We're expecting 1 billion more humans over the next few decades, alongside a rise in the middle class from the current 2 billion to 4 billion in 2030 and a society that insists on live longer healthier lives.
These are all great things, but they are based on the ability for us to feed, house, clothe, educate and employ this growing band of people and in this weeks radio segments I explore the future of food to explore whether we will have enough food for everyone, if we do whether the food of 2035 bares any semblance to today's food and how might we be creating these foods.
Today's' reality, according to the UN, i

This time of year is always a great time to take stock of what we have achieved in 2015 and what we may get up to, have and want in 2016, and tonight in my regular on air Nightlife radio segment Jennifer Fleming of ABC local and I did just that.
2015 had a lot of firsts, ranging from incredible pictures of Pluto, Tesla's car software upgrades, Jeff Bazos and Elon Musk both successfully landing space crafts back on earth and windows 10 sedate launch are just some of my h

Bench-tops that turn into convection cooking tops. Weight scales that measure and guide you through the ingredient inclusions. Fridges that talk to your pantry and then let you know what you have and need and order what you don't and 3D printers that print food ready for you to eat, were all part of a Read More...

So much negativity about jobs in manufacturing and other industry's at the moment, that those that have been doing it tough for a while are even more confused and despondent about where their future jobs may be, if at all.
This stark reality prompted Anthony Tilly of RadioWest 1098 to want to chat about Future Careers and where those on Western Australia's wheat-belt may be able to look and what to tell their kids.
Without downplaying the hardships many sectors are undergoing and will undergo, we are in the throws of an industrial revo

3D printing seems to be making the headlines more often lately as we hear about 3D printing for medicine, manufacturing, housing, foods, cars and just about everything. even though the technology has been around since the 1980's it's only in the last few years that it has become commercially viable with technology, need and culture combining to press the "Go" button on all things 3D printed. In our regular look ahead David Dowsett of radio ABC Wide BayRead More...

To have the TEDx stage for 18 minutes is a privilege and an honor. To use this global platform to tell the story of my family's past, to introduce my ancestors who have not been spoken of or seen in over 70 years to a worldwide audience that they could never have imagined and to combine all of this with my love of the infinite possibilities of the future and what we must each do to allow these opportunities into our lives is a gift that I will cherish forever - thank you!!
I would love you to watch it, like it and leave a comment to let me know what you see ahead and what excess baggage you're leaving behind to make room for the future and an enormous thank you to the 1,000+ people that watched it within the first 24 hours of it being put up on YouTube.

I was sent this homemade version of last week's TEDx presentation, it reminds me of the counterfeit movies (not that I have ever seen one) where you can see the tops of the audiences heads, occasionally hear their comments and the vision is not quite right, but I though it was worth posting anyway, until the real thing arrives.

Wow, I just came off stage at TEDx Melbourne and it's way to early for the video recording, but here's the slide deck and a scractchy audio recording of my 18 minutes.
My main takeout message is that we are so full of the past that we don't have room for the future.
If we are going to ove
