Kate McCallum, chair of The Millennium Project Arts/Media Node and Ed Lantz of Vortex hosted a live 360 streaming video presentation on the State of the Future 19.1 from the Vortex Dome in LA (most likely the only dome in the world that is live streaming 360 video). You can see the unedited version 23 minutes into the video at: PM: http://vortexdomes.com/vortexvr/ (an edited version may be available in a week or so, hopefully with enhance audio). We also had a great meeting with the organizer of a “We are the World” -like concert and workshop that will focus on the future of the world. It looks like The Millennium Project will play a role in both the preliminary even later in 2018 and the full event with the big concert in 2019.
Stan Rosen, Member of The MP Planning Committee since 1996 and I were having lunch the last day in LA when former moon-walker Astronaut Buzz Aldrin called Stan to see if he had time to review some long-range options for government and private sector space programs. So we picked him up and spent the rest of the day going over innovative Moon/Mars transportation/energy options. As you may know the first book that I wrote, as well as the first book Ted Gordon wrote, was on the future development space programs. Nice getting a space update with Stand and Buzz.
Now back in DC to begin putting together the 24-hour Round-the-Word conversation for World Future Day March 1st.
