Futurist are fond of saying that if you want to see the future, look at what is happening at the fringe. The fringe of society, the fringe of science, the fringe of an industry. There you will find unconventional thinking unconstrained by the past. There you will find a young Steve Jobs working on a personal computer when there was no PC industry. The unforeseen consequences of Job’s work were many including the death of the typewriter industry.
