I’ve had several people who wrote to me asking about the video recording of my November 16, 2021 conversation with Rohit Tawlar of FastFuture.com. Well, here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Description: This fireside chat will explore Nikola’s thesis that “The human story that brought us into the 21st century was written and rewritten several times. The latest major update was perhaps during the industrial revolution. It is time to rewrite it again. We need a new story. A brave story. An unreasonable story. A story that can inspire, unite, and motivate us to break free from the past and create the best possible future.
This is what Nikola’s current project focuses on. The conversation will examine how the current human story came to be, how it works, what its impact and importance are, and why we are currently witnessing it fall apart – politically, economically, philosophically, ecologically, and even socially. Nikola will then argue that to survive and thrive in a world of exponential technology and disruptive change, we must rewrite our human story – individually, collectively, and globally. Finally, Nikola will end by proposing a framework for, as well as several possible new versions of, our human story.
Nikola is the founder of the highly popular Singularity Weblog, a keynote speaker, host of the Singulairty.FM podcast series, and author of Conversations with the Future: 21 Visions for the 21st Century.
