Nikolas Badminton loves to think about the future. In 2014 people started calling him a futurist. This was probably because he had been talking about the strange future of sex, the Internet of Things in 2020, why software is sexier than advertising, creativity, the collaborative economy, the The Future of Work, industrial wearables, surveillance, psychedelics, the connected society, and the quality of life we have with technology.
“You should write a book.” Those words rang in my ears. How will I find time? I am busy with three separate jobs, a relationship, blogging, and writing articles. I’ve threatened to write long-form books on specific subjects for some time; however, when I start researching, I find that things move so quickly that my original intentions and impressions are soon washed away and replaced with newer, more innovative ways and means for humans to connect and interact with each other.
Wait. Writing? Well, maybe I’ve already done enough writing to form a book. That is where the idea to release this book came from. Instead of starting a new book right away (a new book will come soon), I have collected some of my favourite writing and thoughts from the past two to three years and compiled it in my book.
