Future Culture In the 21st Century

Futures Studies, Foresight, or Futurology , according to Wikipedia, is the science, art and practice of postulating possible, probable, and preferable futures and the worldviews and myths that underlie them. Futures studies (colloquially called "Futures" by many of the field's practitioners) seeks to understand what is likely to continue, what is likely to change, and what is novel. Part of the discipline thus seeks a systematic and pattern-based understanding of past and present, and to determine the likelihood of future events and trends. Futures is an interdisciplinary field, studying yesterday's and today's changes, and aggregating and analyzing both lay and professional strategies, and opinions with respect to tomorrow.

Loves You, Loves You Not This Valentine's Day

Hey, hopeless romantics and romanticists !

Crunchgear.com suggests something that will make you go more bonkers this Valentine's Day -- if you're one who's heart beats gush over these stuff on this so-called Red-Letter Month.

This watch , supposedly cashing in on this season's Valentine's Day celebrations, may alternately send you to high heavens, and next second would give you an all-time low. If I were you, you can just get on with your life and do what you have to do, or twiddle your thumbs as you let the mushy Valentine's Day pass you by.

But, if you can stand the metamorphosing emotions taking you for a rollercoaster ride, and if you think you can keep your sanity even with such "profound pronouncements" of "She loves you" and "She loves you not" the next sec ... go ahead, buy the watch ... purchase at your own risk!

Loves me watch

by John Biggs


The seconds tick off the awful truth… one second she loves you. The next she does not. Again - she loves you. Good god. She loves you not. Will this madness never end?

Friend, it never had to start. You’re the one who paid $145 for this crazy watch.

The design of this watch is inspired by the game of Effeuiller La Marguerite in which “loves me, loves me not” is spoken while plucking the petals of a flower.

Loves Me acts as a never-ending, animated flower that answers love dilemmas: pulling up the winding crown stops the mechanism and reveals cupid’s verdict.
