On the last Friday morning of each month I gather together the best tech, innovation, invention, rumour, mumbling, memes and stories of the previous 30 days and squeeze them into a 30 minutes webinar focusing on what's next and after next and dolloping each with a lavish helping of why I think the stories important / not important; what its likely and unlikely consequences may be on humans, society and business; when it might hit (if at all) and what (if anything) you can do about / with it right now and then present it live online, to an ever-growing band of loyal global followers.

Why you’ll own nothing by 2030, not even your pets / Money Magazine

Date posted: January 25, 2018

Imagine a world where you didn’t own “stuff”, but instead chose to rent or share everything with your community. That includes your car, kitchen utensils, caravan, space and even your pets. Welcome to the future, with experts predicting that by 2030 we will become an “asset light” society. “We have now become an experiential society,” says Morris Miselowski, an Australian business futurist. “Whilst post-war baby boomers saw value in the assets they owned, Millennials are putting more value on new experiences to boost happiness over owning assets. “This is due to the rising cost of living and also, along with the rest of society, we

Gen A's (born 2002 - 2025) beginning Prep this week, will finish high school in 2031 and emerge into a world that will be so different to today's that they might as well be living on Mars (and they might be). In this weeks on air segments I chatted about 10 significant ways the world will have changed by 2031, and what we can do now to get them, ourselves and our businesses ready for the very near world ahead:

  1. Gen A won’t use technology, they will BE technology - tech will be so ordinary, ubiquitous and built into every surface and object that we will speak to it, play with it, and engage with it as if it were anot

Date posted: October 30, 2017

We so often look forward to what we might have in the future, that its fun to stop for a minute and think about what we won't have in the future, and this week News.com.au's Gary Nunn reached out to ask exactly that... WITHIN our own lifetime, people will scoff at the thought of sitting on a flight for 22+ hours across the world. It’s one of many things that’ll rapidly seem unfeasible to the upcoming generation. Elon Musk recently revealed plans for a next-generation spacecraft that could fly to “most pla

Predicting the Future of Your Business / Business Brain Food Podcast

Date posted: October 9, 2017

Absolutely chuffed to be invited on to Ben Fewtrell's Business Brain Food Podcast and what a great chat we had, as we explored all things future; the way humans will live, love, work, create and play; what's ahead for business, some of the tricks of the futurist trade and the step by step methodology I use to do what I do, including my most beloved workshop: The Drunken Saturday Night. Ben's intro of me went like this: "What a thoroughly interesting man we have on the show this week. Morris Miselowski has made it his business to predict the future, but there are no crystal balls and tarot cards here….. Mor

Living to 120 and working to 90 / Channel 10’s The Project

Date posted: October 6, 2017

The crew from Channel 10's The Project reached out this evening, ahead of a keynote I'm delivering in Adelaide on the weekend on Living to 120 and working into our 90's and asked if I could take them on a tour of tomorrow in search of what a world where we all have the potential to live to beyond 100 might look like. Along the way, we explored a tomorrow in which we routinely live to 100 and beyond; asked what jobs if any we might be doing (including my belief that there will be no jobs, as we know them); how we could possibly work until we're 90; how we might be liv

Date posted: September 25, 2017

reprinted from Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, Courier Mail, NT Times, New Zealand Herald,  Adelaide Now, Balonne Beacon, Queensland Times, a list of Australia's beet sharing sites are at the bottom of this story. 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
