Update #2 - Yay! 75% Yay! March 16, 2015

We just hit 75% funded and it's all downhill from here... wait, that's not right. Anyway, I'd love it if you could share this campaign with others who are looking for a non-dystopian look at the future.

When I was a kid my Dad gave me a few books to read including Future Shock by Alvin Toffler and some of Faith Popcorn's books. I've always loved that type of book - a clear-eyed look at the future that isn't full of naysaying and fear - and I'm ready to write my own. Thank you for joining me.

I also recorded a quick video with Kasper and Guthrie, two of the folks I'm writing this book for. Take a gander and let me know if you have any ideas for the book. It's still very early and very nascent and we can shape it in a direction you want it to go.

All the best,

JB
