The Futurists Among Us - Over Half a Decade

For over one half a decade, Brown Bag sessions on the future have been a cornerstone for sharing foresight. One of the fundamental principles guiding the Institute for the Future @ AACC is the notion that local professionals and citizens are profound resources in viewing the future. The foresight and insight shared by the contributors below have made an exceptional contribution to an understanding of the future.

Some of the presentations below are available for personal, professional or academic use on the Web; more are being made "web-friendly," so check back from time to time.
