Tech Douchebags #11: The Practical Futurist

June 9, 2014 at 3:00PM • 1 hour 18 minutes

In this week’s meeting, business strategist Steve Faktor shares his experience helping companies innovate, why successful businesses start with addressing a real-world problem, whether the mainstream public even cares about the "next big thing", and how we may be perpetuating the issue by always trumpeting technology as the solution to everything.

In addition, we discuss why innovation that involves a massive change in consumer behavior is a rarity, why there's an influx of money being invested in small concocted problems for a privileged demographic, and how the current bubble of growth is being driven by income inequality and the monetary system.

It concludes with Steve completing step six by coming to terms with his past predictions that were wrong and being willing in the future to publicly acknowledge them despite the potential hit to his ego, social capital or credibility as a "futurist".

Hosted by Jordan Cooper.
