Bran FerrenBran Ferren, designer, technologist, and Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Applied Minds LLC, will keynote the 2013 Geodesign Summit with a talk titled “Five Minutes Into The Future: An argument for taking a longer view…”

“We are living in a time of short attention spans, where discussions of critical global topics are often sustained by little more than a succession of sound bites, blog entries, and tweets. Consequently, it’s becoming harder and harder to have a thoughtful public dialog about complex topics, some with long-term implications to life itself. This talk will explore how Geodesign is becoming a new form of storytelling that can help illuminate the reality of many of these key issues, and to help us find our way.”
