The Edge have this year an interesting question as it’s Annual Edge question: What have you changed your mind about?
A couple of weeks ago I noted an increasing pattern on Google Trends when it came to Canada and searches for the word future.
Are things starting to go faster when it comes to the economic shift from the western economies towards the new BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) or is it just a temporary dip?
For the last year or so most of my involvements in foresight activities in organizations seems to have different results than before.
Inspired by this post in Google Blogoscoped (found via 43 Folders) and the statements that people are predictable I got reminded of the power of Google Trends.
Interesting tone in a news program discussing something that used to be completely weird (to other than philosophers).
