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

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

Future of Mobility / ABC Nightlife

Date posted: March 26, 2017

Humans are all about mobility, it's hard-wired into our DNA and soft wired into our hearts and souls. We gaze longingly at the horizon, travel treacherous oceans and uncharted solar systems all in the hope of extending our grasp on reality and possibility. This week I was lucky enough to spend some time with the Ford tribe gazing into the future of mobility and what transport might be, look like and offer us in the next 50 years and last night ABC's Nightlife Phil Clarke and I carried on this conversation with our audience and special guest Sheryl Connelly Ford's Global Consumer Trends and Futuring Manager. Listen in as we explore the future of transport, c

Where do bad ideas go? / radio Hong Kong 3

Date posted: December 13, 2016

The end of the straddle bus and the beginning of an uneasy truce between President elect Trump and the entire tech community are the stories du jour as Hong Kong 3's Phil Whelan and I catch up for our weekly chat on all things future, tech and whatever else. The straddle bus was a great Chinese innovation that's been around for a while and in August this year seemed to gain new energy as a prototype hit the streets for a 300 metre journey, but since then its been awfully quiet and we've just found out why. Only a couple of months since its supposed triumph, the bus is sitting in a yard derelict and unloved and its innovators are being accused of illegal crowdfunding, unauthorized road

Science Fiction Dreams Do Come True / ABC Nightlife

Date posted: October 19, 2016

Blue Moon over futuristic City Every great invention started life as a mere thought, became a vision before turning into an obsession. One of the most oft questions I get asked, "Is where do ideas come from?" and one of the most oft answers I give is Science Fiction. It's amazing what our brain's have stored away from what we've read, watch and imagine and how at just the right moment of opportunity it springs these dormant thoughts back into life, ready for creation. In our regular Nightlife on ABC Local Radio catch up Dom Knight and I chatted about the influence Science Fiction has had on our lives and asked

Driverless Cars and Scalpels / Hong Kong 3, ABC Far North, Austereo

Date posted: April 26, 2016

singaporeSingapore is set to take the driverless revolution up a notch, by this week announcing it will put driverless public transport electric pods on the road by the end of this year. We're not quite sure where they'll travel, but we do know they'll hold 24 passengers each and be capable of transporting up to 8,000 passengers per hour and this seemed like a great conversation starter for my regular on air catch ups with Hong Kong 3's Phil Whelan, ABC Far North's Kier Shorey and  Austereo's Anthony Tilli. Talking driverless and electric also let us look at China's newest auto maker LeSee, a voice activated autonomous car, that could give Tesla a run for its money. I

Airports of the Future – a passportless journey / ABC Radio National

Date posted: February 20, 2016

my-australian-passport-cover Airports should evoke a sense of excitement as we dash off to a new destination or start a grand adventure, but for numerous travellers airports are overwhelming and stressful. For those who cannot escape to the sanctuary of an airport lounge, there can be long lines and pushy passengers. But soon airports could become a destination themselves: a bright and airy haven of comfort and calm. Travellers will be able to glide through with limited human interaction armed only with a smart phone and a smile. And don't worry about your passport because by 2050 they'll be outdated and totally in the cloud, or wherever we choose to store
