Atlas Of The Futures Workshop is an annual workshop held for four years with aim at discovering possible futures.
The first Atlas was just a bunch of people who started to talk in online conference over some topics of their own interest, speaking of nearest future and ways to make it “better”. After a weeks of hot discussion they came to conclusion “future is in our kids” and have focused on learning, creativity and, of course, gaming.
They pictured some desired future and some of them, me included, made some effort on realisation of that future. Some impact from their work could be found, for instance, on one of Russian social blogging network.
Atlas next year was started as a future research around adoption of mobile interfaces and positioning — we have looked for possible ways it will change the world and planted some projects on the ground of our thoughts.
Atlas for 2008 was, again, around learning, education and new ecology, the era of humane magica. We have realised our insights in several workshops and started some new spin-offs again.
Atlas of the Futures 2009 is about the futures of the Web.
Atlas Ot The Futures 2009 workshop was conducted as an online game to co-design and co-create the futures.
Wiki-future is a project where we create our futures together, in an ongoing collaboration with each other. Together we try to recognize the weak signals of the coming times, make sense of the new manifestations, and get insights into possible realities of the future.
Nikolay Yaremko (it’s me!) presented Atlas 2009 proceedings during Pecha Kucha on The Next Web 2009, and here are slides for this talk:
