"But here I dreamt I was an architect
And I built this balustrade
To keep you home, to keep you safe"
- The Decemberists, "Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect"
If you aren't familiar with The Decemberists, seriously give a a song or two a listen. They are amazing. And even better live.
So let's talk about dreams, the future and what that actually means to us. We've seen Hollywood depiction of hyper sleek, fully automated and perhaps sprinkle in the ever popular, dystopian world.
But how can we even get there? Maybe the answer lies in some of the current innovation trends we see today. We've all heard the term "Smart Cities" and we certainly know that practically everything we buy is bluetooth enabled or connected over wifi.
- So, what does this mean?
- Are we still in the dream stage?
- What are OUR Dreams for the future?
