Ron Cobb’s views on the future

Today I interviewed Ron Cobb (Alien, Aliens, Back to the Future, Last Star Fighter, Star Wars, etc.) and Syd Mead (2010, Tron, Blade Runner, Aliens, etc.) for Web Conference. After the session Ron wanted to continue the discussion with his thoughts on how the future is perceived from a vantage point of now or the past and that the future is probably much less recognisable if we were to actually time travel from now to some point in the future.

Ron and I would love to continue this discussion with Syd and many others.

My NUI research is based on the near future as you have seen from my blog and looking further out becomes far more fragmented and random for prediction as you will hear more about from Ron.
