What tools/frameworks to explore ethical impacts of tech have impressed you? Foresight’s Implications Analysis is great yet ethics aren’t built in. McLuhan’s classic Tetrad scratches the surface. Business Ethical Reasoning isn't rigorously future tense. What are you leveraging?

Facebook has foresight strategists in house, so why was it not prepared for the boycott & civil rights report? My 1st assumptions for how this happened: placement & access. Was the team not in a reporting line to address & influence these core areas? Surely they saw them coming.

So invigorating to revisit/refresh foresight methodologies w/ the APF’s Knowledge Base of Futures Studies. To me, this geography of futures studies is so powerful now w/ the increasing demand for rigorous futures work & opportunities to use foresight tools for good @profuturists

I learned a lot from @arlanwashere’s It's About Damn Time- a highly recommended book in my post-MBA reading https://t.co/iyAVIlqprC It snuck up on me, inspiring me in my work, esp w/ @Zebras_Unite, & shares wisdom atop its value as memoir + info in the VC domain. @Backstage_Cap

It’s About Damn Time is a great read. The book is as informative as it is moving. Thank you @ArlanWasHere https://t.co/iyAVIlqprC https://t.co/8a3Qc7swxl

I enjoyed Bina Venkataraman’s @binajv’s book The Optimist's Telescope: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age & look forward to her @longnow seminar. Her approachable & illuminating popfuturing book gets foresight right (as judgement). I learned a lot from its wide-spanning anecdotes. https://t.co/uIMCUElA0T
