Just a quick promotional note before we start — a reminder that I’ll be running our annual two-week intensive summer course on futures, innovation and design at IED Barcelona in July 2016. Friends John Willshire and Andres Colmenares will be joining, and some other celebs to be named later. Start saving now, and come join us. Last year’s students included folks from Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, Denmark, Switzerland, the UK, and Spain. This year, we’d love to expand the map even further. I’m looking at you, Asia.
