Hi Alec, Has Stanford's emphasis on "design thinking" influenced you? Other university or researched based programs that you subscribe to? In sum, where are the big ideas being developed? Ciao, Joe Cerami

Hi Alec, Your book Industries of the Future gives a really interesting view of what is ahead of us. What makes it interesting is your ability to anticipate what is likely to happen. What should someone do to go through a similar thought process in order to become better at anticipating future trends?
