Re-introduction. As the bio says, I’m an autodidact, generalist, and synthesist. I write Sentiers, a weekly newsletter for those who want to understand the world and imagine better futures, it’s even been called “the closest thing we now have to a ‘This week in futures’ newsletter.” My work usually has to do with curating and writing, with a fledgling practice in futures.

Everyone who's not a white bro still struggles to get financing, yet this truant manages to grab another $70 million for a scam within a scam. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Very much into this post by, in equal parts because I'm avidly noticing some parts, and seen af in others. (Like in that quote!)

There's a not insignificant overlap between people who yell about an edit button on birdsite and those who yell "put X on the blockchain!" Think about it.

I'm pretty much off Twitter and the better for it, RSS and newsletters FTW!

Sometimes, things you know still don't register. "It’s 21 years since the first ever iPod." 🤯🤯🤯

🚨 👉🏼 A pretty big project has been pushed back 4-5 months, so I find myself with quite a bit of availability for that period. Hit me up if you need a hand finding signals about what’s going on and what’s coming, connecting the dots (making sense), or communicating your thinking (writing newsletters, blogs, briefings, etc.).

For my personal taste, I find that a lot of websites look best on an iPad in portrait orientation.

New thing on the blog, noting for reference a year later. An online version of the short talk I gave at the Montréal chapter of Speculative Futures.

Loose principles on scanning, angled for the needs of organizations.
