Civilization Far From Equilibrium

Yesterday this talk came up twice in two very different conversations, one related to game design and the other related to the nature and necessity of complexity and energy in society. This is a talk worth watching (or listening) to.

The talk in question is a Civilization Far From Equilibrium: Energy, Complexity and Human Survival by Thomas Homer-Dixon. It was delivered last June at the Equinox Summit in Waterloo.

The Elusive Technological Future

This lecture given by John Naughton is stunning. In this half-hour long talk he breaks down how technology actually changes us in ways we didn’t expect; it’s amazing how large our blind spots can be when it comes to new technologies. The last half of the video is Q&A.
