10 Profoundly Personal Future Innovations

Here’s a list of innovations that really caught my attention as this list takes a refreshingly human and personal look at the future and also manages to live up to this headline of being both profound and innovative.  Well worth your time to read though I’ll warn you in advance that there are lots of links and each one is worth following and using up even more of your valuable time and attention.

Notice how many of the innovations featured in this list are already happening and add to my What if the impossible isn’t? list.  As you reflect upon what you read here I think you will see how this adds to my conviction around The Snowflake Effect and that our future is a giant snowstorm of extreme mass customization for every person every day by making everything deeply personal and unique.  Read on and see what you think?

    Great article and it is amazing how close we are to these realities. It is an exciting time we live in! I hope this note finds you back aboard your sailboat in NZ. We met at the ASTD TechKnowledge Conference in Las Vegas, last week. I thought your “Snowflake Effect” presentation was fantastic and very enlightening. I look forward to continued exploration of the topic in this blog.
