Working Futures: A Scenario-Planning Game Exploring The Future Of Work

Earlier this week, we announced our latest project from our think tank wing, the Copia Institute, called Working Futures. This is a project to really take an deep look at what the future of work might really look like in the next ten to fifteen years. As the first part of this project, we’re asking people to take a quick survey, to help figure out which driving forces are going to play the most important role in what work looks like going forward. So far, the feedback and insights we’ve received have been fantastic, provocative and quite thoughtful. However, the more insight we get, the better the overall project will turn out, so if you haven’t yet had a chance to do so, please head on over and take the survey. The future of work depends on you…

Re: Re: Re:3 Broken

This wasn’t a hypothetical exercise, it was part of a real-world workflow for a very small team – the survey needed to be built in a couple of days by someone without any html/css knowledge, and needed to have certain specific capabilities. This was the appropriate solution.

You will perhaps be more pleased to know that the main Working Futures site, which was indeed hand-coded from scratch, involves no JavaScript whatsoever, and I agree it is silly when simple non-interactive one-pager websites are built using robust and elaborate script frameworks.

Do y'all actually think this will produce anything substantive?

I submitted my thoughts, for all the good it’ll do. Odds are this is going to be yet another bunch of roundtables where people offer up the same vague platitudes and zero progress is made because the people involved are afraid of shaking up the status-quo that they’ve massively benefited from, just like Davos every year.
