Not that the copyrights are being enforced, but it’s still mindboggling how out of date our copyright system is. Cory Doctorow is one of the earliest adopters of the Creative Commons License for his works. He and his science fiction novels play with this emerging era of creative cynicism. Today, Cory gives us a deep insight into this issue and how the ownership of works and ideas is bound to change in the future.

    GIF04: The Future of Right or Wrong with Juan Enriquez

    GIF04: The Future of Right or Wrong with Juan Enriquez

    Show Summary
    Perhaps the biggest challenge looking forward to the future is to see our future selves. How will we change our biology and genetics? How will we make decisions about what we should alter? It's important because technology constantly changes our perceptions of right and wrong. So, what are ethics in regards to human life? Why making strong ethical and moral considerations is bad? What are some of the important ethical fights today that will impact the quality of life of our future generations? And what are some of the things we should be doing today to avoid being judged harshly by our future generations? In this episode of the Boldly NOW Show, academic, author, and futurist Juan Enriquez answers all these questions. He gives us new viewpoints and tools to make choices more wisely in the face of the neo-biological revolution.

    GFI03: Adah Parris, Being a Good Ancestor

    GFI03: Adah Parris, Being a Good Ancestor

    Show Summary
    How do we learn lessons from the past? How can we leave behind our global problems and create a new era for humanity? What are the technologies and behaviors we need to adapt to make sustainable change, and how do we bring all that back to the people who can take action to change the world? These are the questions polymath tech Futurist Adah Parris has been grappling with in the face of the challenges we have today. In this episode of the Boldy Now show, Adah shines a light on these questions and gives us ways to recognize new patterns that can lead to a better future.

    Full Show Notes
    The episode starts with a discussion on what it means to be a futurist. Adah gives a detailed insight into the term and how she came to be recognized as one. A futurist systematically explores the present to predict the future while considering the past. However, a futurist doesn't just have to be a mere predictor of patterns. The real task of a Futurist is to create stories that can help humanity pull into a better future.
    Adah is also a systems thinker. Her framework “Cyborg Shamanism” provides a lens through which we can look at the world and decode everything that happens around us. Cyborg Shamanism consists of five phases:
    1. Leave – First Phase: How do we leave these problems/ old ways behind?
    2. Breathe – Second Phase: How can we remove these tensions in the system to create a hypothesis for change?
    3. Grow – Third Phase: What are the tools/technologies/rituals/behaviors to try to make this true? (i.e., How to stress test it)
    4. Flow – Fourth Phase: Thinking long-term, what type of answers make it sustainable?
    5. Ground – Fifth Phase: How do we ground that down to create a sense of kinship?
    All living systems are self-operating mechanisms. But, we always learn some lessons in one world that can be brought into the other. Binaries create competition and division. Whether it's spirituality, philosophy, physics, mechanics, or metaphysics, bringing different worlds together can help humanity cooperate rather than compete.
    Today, we need new technologies that are capitalistic but still provide a positive impact on humanity and the world. We need businesses that operate less like machines and more as living organisms. There's a lot to learn from nature. We can replicate how nature creates no waste. Perhaps a new hierarchy of needs would be appropriate in which the base level is “We” rather than “I." The rules of the game have already been broken by COVID. It's the right time to shift and change and create new, better and sustainable technologies.
    The same can be said about our political systems. We are still using a 100-200 years old top-down authoritarian approach to manage countries. Our politics is politics of divide and conquer. However, borders have become more fluid in this digital day and age. Organizations have become more influential like we see different organizations taking steps about vaccine passports. Humanity needs to figure...

    GFI02: TRANSCENDING THE CLIMATE CRISIS with Kim Stanley Robinson
    Show Summary
    Tune into the Bold.ly Now Show featuring Kim Stanley Robinson, the Hugo and Nebula winning author of the Mars Trilogy. He is known as a realistic, science-based highly-literary science fiction author with over 20 books published. Stan's work often focuses on themes like sustainability, economic and social justice, climate change, and speculative futures. Today, we discuss these themes covered in Stan’s atypical sci-fi novel, The Ministry for the Future. Stan uses the book to demonstrate a vision of a new future for humanity and investigate what it might take to survive and transcend the climate crisis.

    Full Show Notes
    The world is on track to miss the target of keeping the global average temperature within 2 degrees celsius of the warming limit. That means humans will have to adapt to a higher temperature. But, how much can we adapt? It's a well documented fact that humanity cannot survive a high heat index – a combination of high heat and high humidity. So, no matter the eco-modernist's view, humanity faces more of an emergency than we think.
    Kim Stanley Robinson’s novel “The Ministry for the Future” runs wild with this idea. The book aims not just to transform people's thinking but also the culture itself. While his atypical approach to “novel writing” may seem borderline blasphemous, it's not something new. Stan believes he was inspired by the USA trilogy (by John Dos Passos) and Moby Dick (Herman Melville). Here, he talks in detail about his novel writing approach, entertainment VS education aspect, and how he manages to “tell” just as much as “show” to keep the novel fun and engaging for the readers.
    We live in a nation-state global capitalist world. To write a realistic plausible novel, discussing capitalism and how it exacerbates the climate problem is inevitable. This system favors a few, but the climate is a zero-sum game. Paris agreement was, therefore, a great step in the right direction. We need better pricing of our relationship to the biosphere. Only then can we attempt to morph the system into better treatment of people and the biosphere.
    Stan’s novel extracts a lot from the current economic conditions and gives us a viable picture of the future. The Carbon coin, introduced in the book, strikes a chord with the crypto-revolution currently taking place. Similarly, the targeted asymmetrical violence reminds of the occupy movement. Along the way, the book asks some very pertinent questions making a case for neoliberal capitalism. Unlike the often held view, neoliberal capitalism is not a hands-off approach to governance. It's still a very strong governance model that is indispensable for a socially just political economy.
    It's a mixed picture in the world right now. On the bright side, we have the EU commission announcing plans for forced labor import ban, the successes of the 30 x 30 movement, the Paris accord and similar steps taken by governments in the USA, China and India. On the negative side, we have the reactionary capitalist businesses which exploit the natural resources to death and would not go without a fight. This discursive battle is but just one aspect of the larger political and physical battle.
    Biological diversity is just important as human cultural diversity. We are part of nature. Our body cells are part of the biosphere – from the cradle to the grave. Whenever there has been a mass extinction event, about 70 per cent o

Bringing History Forward

This was a great introduction to what you both are doing with Bold.ly Now. I very much appreciated my friend Doug’s description along with your view Michael. I have begun to share Bold.ly Now with people I can see benefiting from the conversations, the practices, the knowledge and experience base.
I will be folding in as I can to support my own growth even as a retired person I still coach, guide, and provide insight to several communities.
Looking forward to the future!!
