Announce Title 1: Metaverse Roadmap Project Update
[Jerry Paffendorf ] ASF is embarking on a major foresight project in 2006: the Metaverse Roadmap: Pathways to the 3D Web. For a brief intro to technology roadmaps, see our Roadmapping page. For an overview of the project, see our Metaverse Roadmap (MVR) page. The MVR is made possible by generous start-up support from The Electric Sheep Company. We are creating a team of partner companies and organizations interested in supporting the project. Partners to date include the Arden Institute virtual worlds research center at Indiana University and the State of Play conference on law, video games, and virtual worlds at the New York Law School. Email ASF Research Director Jerry Paffendorf to join the project, or for more information.

Announce Title 3: ASF Donation Request
Start the new year off right with an act of foresight and philanthropy. Pledge $50 to a worthy cause, the Acceleration Studies Foundation, the only 501c3 educational nonprofit dedicated to improving understanding and guidance of accelerating processes of planetary change. Your contributions are tax deductible, and will greatly help us serve our community in 2006. You can donate to our Bear Sterns endowment account (where the donated principal generates interest income for the ASF in perpetuity), to our general fund, or to any of our specific projects, such as building our Future Salon Network, producing our acclaimed conference, Accelerating Change, writing our Foresight Development university coursework curricula, doing top-quality technology roadmapping research, or creating great future-oriented podcasts next year! See our Donations page for donation options.

The Acceleration Story

ATimes covers world news and insight in five "spaces," giving one to three briefs in each space. The story of accelerating change, the most fascinating story of our time, can be told as a story of movement from outer, to human, to inner, to cyber, and ultimately, to hyper space, the world beyond the present. Each of these contributes to a multidisciplinary understanding of the future:

Outer Space (the world around us: science, the natural and built environment, universal systems)
Human Space (the human world: our bodies, behavior, minds, human systems)
Inner Space (the world below: energy, small tech, computer "bodies", inner systems)
Cyber Space (the virtual world: computer "behavior", computer "minds", cyber systems)
Hyper Space (the world beyond: new paradigms, phase transitions, hyperphysics, hyper systems)

If you have important stories to share with our acceleration-aware readers, we'd love to hear from you


Outer Space
science (biology, chemistry, geology, physics, research), the natural and built environment, universal systems (developmental physics, hierarchical substrates)

Call for Submissions
ASF is always seeking interesting submissions for our Accelerating Times (AT) web publication. AT is a "free and priceless" monthly newsletter covering scientific, technological, business, policy, and social dialogs in accelerating change. Anyone may submit scan hits, mini-articles, pictures, artwork, quotes and questions to mail(at)accelerating.org. Accepted work will appear, fully credited, in future issues. Please submit any feedback on Accelerating Times articles to the Future Salon Weblog. Thanks!
