Binoculars for Black Swan Watchers
Where Audubon Meets the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence
“Like all true stories, Rohan’s was bizarre, and did not make sense.”
Stanisław Lem, The Invincible
Black Swans can’t be predicted...but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some educated guesses as to where they might spring from next.
Get the hands-on experience you need -- using science fictional metaphor -- to better prepare for real-world Black Swans.
In this Black Swan Thinking session, we will:
- look at six nesting grounds to keep an eye on for the (not quite) foreseeable future
- explore how good swanwatching practices require special glasses that are informed by both hard data gathering and speculative fiction
- reveal how knowledge and tools will benefit the creation of antifragile design likewise.
