Sharing economy: Why we will barely own anything in the future /, ABC Far North

IN 2030, if we need a ball gown, a grandparent to babysit our kids or a screwdriver to repair damage at home, we’ll simply go online, pay a small fee and borrow one. Most of us won’t own cars, holiday homes or work at the same office everyday. Our houses won’t be filled with stuff we rarely use. Many of our daily functions will be outsourced for a small fee, with all these interactions controlled through our smar

google-rd_1-100343051-origForget about using your mouse and keyboard, just use your shirt, your pants, your socks and whatever else you're wearing that happens to be made of Google's new jacquard material of the future and by waving your arms, walking or doing whatever else comes naturally (keep it clean) your technology and its minion of apps will follow behind you. This is only one of the many announcements that Google made last week at its annual I/O developer conference in San Francisco. This conference is a great way to understand what Google is going to do i

Unlearn the Future – Morris Live at TEDx Melbourne

Date posted: December 20, 2013

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.
