Dear Grandson, I am sorry

To my dearest Grandson,

I am sorry. I and many of my friends, colleagues and acquaintances — we all tried. We wrote articles, we appeared on media programs, we supported political parties, we became scientists of note, we even rose to positions of prominence in the business and entertainment worlds. But we failed. And you, and your children are bearing the cost.




The Futurian is a foresight magazine devoted to looking at how the future will be experienced. Many pockets of the future are seen today. We aim to examine those seeds of the future and how they impact upon the world in which we live.
