Seven ways our world might be different in 2020

shift 2020 book review on - February 2014

In 2010, futurist Rudy de Waele asked a number of influential doers and thinkers in the mobile space to imagine what 2020 would look like given tech trends of the time. He’s now gone back to those thinkers, plus others from outside the mobile space, and updated this into Shift 2020 – a collaborative book. The book is just over 80 pages long, and it’s in need of an edit in places, but nevertheless there are some interesting ideas in there from fascinating people including Gerd Leonhard of The Futures Agency, Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission, and Kate Darling, researcher in Intellectual Property and Robot Ethics at Harvard/MIT.
