Getting from “here” to “there” is rarely obvious - or a straight line. But radical imagination is always part of the process. "What’s Next?" is a series of conversations in which my friend Jimmy Buff and I invited some insightful humans to share their ideas on changes to come and how we might help to create that change. We also talked with folks who shared their wisdom regarding how we got here. This is both a time capsule of moments gathered between 2015 and 2017 and a harbinger (we hope) of change in progress. Einstein said "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” "What’s Next?” will get you thinking about creating new solutions to some of our current problems.
