Many call themselves “futurists” — Bryan actually knows how to do it.
Is @BryanAlexander a wizard because he wrote about the possibility of a pandemic in 2018? He says he has a beard like one.
“Hardest working man in edtech!”
Gotta love @BryanAlexander‘s ability to catalyze a conversation without leaning on hyperbole or triggers.

Your prescience is wild.

How can we imagine the future under the impact of climate change? I’ve been watching the Apple TV+ series Extrapolations, which offers an interesting example of climate fiction. It’s a kind of anthology show, with each episode depicting one story … Continue reading
