Future Crunch does Tassie
September 11, 2014
Time: 6 - 8 pm
134 Elizabeth St; HOBART
Recent breakthroughs in science and technology are creating a world that is more peaceful, transparent and abundant. The changes are exponential in nature, but because of our evolutionary hard-wiring most of our predictions about the future are linear, and focus overwhelmingly on negative trends rather than positive ones.
Tane Hunter and Angus Hervey, Future Crunch’s founders, are going to be talking about recent advances in neuroscience, connectivity, manufacturing, nanotechnology, renewable energy and biotechnology. They’ll be pulling together, sifting through and identifying mind-blowing facts about the world of tomorrow, and communicating them in a way that’s entertaining, fun and friendly.
If you’re interested in a fresh and intelligent perspective on the future, then come and join us at Tasman Quartermasters at 3pm on Saturday the 11th of September. This is an opportunity for people to connect, talk and be inspired to make the world a better place through science and technology.
Tickets are limited, so get in quickly if you want to be part of the audience! We’ll be continuing the conversation afterwards with complimentary canapés and a cash bar for libations.
