Ten Years of Futurology: A SXSW Retrospective with Nigel Gwilliam

The topic to be discussed: A Review of Past Predictions.

Join Nigel Gwilliam as he takes a light-hearted look at what South By got right… and got wrong.

South By Southwest was cancelled the first time in its history this year. Nigel is in lock down like the rest of us. Fortunately, he’s been going to Austin for nearly a decade and still has all his presentations stored away for a rainy pandemic. He has agreed to that most dangerous of presentation topics: a review of past predictions.

Do you know your SoLoMo from your FOMO? (Not that FOMO actually exists anymore), did South By predict Ok, Boomer? Can you engineer serendipity? Will UBI save us all post Covid19? Remember when Julian Assange and Edward Snowden gave remote zoom-like keynotes? What was life like before we entered the matrix in 2016?

Join via Zoom on Thursday 11 June at 2pm.
