Innovation Safari – The Webinar – May 2018

Date posted: May 28, 2018

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.


Some of the stuff I covered in May 2018's webinar included: / artificially intelligent Tupperware // why privacy doesn’t matter // google everything // voice first computing // WeGrow education raises $11.5 million // OpenClassroom r

Future of Sport, Athletes and Spectators / ABC Far North, ABC WA Drive, Hong Kong 3

Date posted: April 16, 2018

With the Commonwealth Games as a backdrop of sporting excellence, it's a great time to look ahead and ponder what the future of sports, athletes and spectators might be, do, train, watch and enjoy in the next few decades and in my #FutureChat media segments this week we explored:

12 things that’ll seem ludicrous in our lifetime / news.com.au, daily telegraph, courier mail, sunshine coast daily, Hong Kong Radio 3, ABC Far North

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

Future Cops / Hong Kong Radio 3

Date posted: September 5, 2017

Hong Kong 3's Phil Whelan and I started our weekly catch up chatting about the future of law enforcement, before diverting quickly to Australia's rebirth as a penal colony and then trying to move on to prison life and the changes over time, but then all of a sudden I felt compelled to confess something I hadn't spoken about in a long time, that I had spent 10 years in and out of prisons and had some personal insights. Now before you become all judgy, I was a volunteer prison chaplain who spent most Sunday's visiting prisoners around Victoria, offering a listening ear, an alternate conversation and a glimpse to the outside world they would one day re enter.

The next batch of major tech disruptors are… / Curtin radio

Date posted: August 29, 2017

I love catching up with tech guru Jason Jordan  and this week I got to chat with him live on air on Curtin Radio as we reminisced about tech of old and speculated about tomorrow's tech. I kicked off with my notion that we are all Homo Cyborgs irrevocably and organically enmeshed with technology, and that the holy grail now is not the technology itself, but rather what it can do for us. We chatted about the demise and rise of the music industry as a metaphor for business in general. 10 years ago the industry seemed on its knees, people were pirating and nor paying, music abounded but money was difficult to

Farming 2025 style / ABC Regional Drive Perth

Date posted: August 28, 2017

I have to start off by admitting that when I first began speaking and consulting to the Agriculture / Horticulture / Live Stock industries 15+ years ago about the Future of Horticulture and Farming, they were a very reluctant and skeptical audience who were used to traditional long-held labour intensive methods of farming and thought that even a mobile phone on the farm was ridiculous. I spent many strategy sessions, workshops and keynotes over the ensuing years going on about technology, robotics, analytics, AI, changes in the workforce, self driving equipment and a change in the way city slickers would think about their food, its

Blockchain this, AI that. Things are moving fast, so, in the interests of bringing you the news before it happens, we cornered Melbourne-based business futurist Morris Miselowski to find out what key technologies are going to change the business landscape, how best to prepare for the future shocks they’re bringing with them and what it all means for our day-to-day 20 years from now. iStart: Hi Morris. Thanks for taking time to talk to us. From your perspective, what’s the technological lay of the land right now? How would you describe the zeitgeist in a technology sense?
