Glossary:

A list of terms in the publication reflective of our possible future.  

Eco-nomics-  the analysis of the environmental effects of sharing economy (example:  Airbnb, Uber), the need to save protect natural resources, and other environmental programs and the controversy over the economic impact.

Vicarious Reality-  how virtual reality and live games are becoming more than a recreation tool but as a tool to simulate experiences.  In addition, to virtual reality devices being used for 4D films, exercise, education.

Corporate Crowdfunding-  Big companies using crowdfunding for PR stunts or as a way to raise capital for projects.

Labriculture-  food including meat being manufactured and produced inside a labratory.

High Altitude Energy-  Solar energy and wind energy that receive leverage by absorbing energy at high altitudes.

No-Tronic Music-  A form of hardcore punk rock that is anti-establishment, anti-technology, that uses only acoustical instruments and everything is sung A cappella.

Weapons of Mass Production-  3D printing used for illicit purposes.

Crowdsourced Predictions:

There will be a special section in the back called Crowdsourced Predictions:  This is a microcosm of various predictions people have submitted that they would like to be made public.  This way everyone has the opportunity to express their outlook in the future while allowing readers to understand these predictions are not necessarily based on any research.   Readers will be exposed to a variety of wishes, fears, and expectations among the general public.

This link provides a list of crowdsourced predictions https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1D2OLqMHdBNwVZKqKSjoojsKMxnTjwBde8q6RJmdjz1c/edit?usp=sharing.  Perspective would like to thank Stephen Russell for his abundant amount of predictions and submissions.

This will also serve as a showcase of blue sky ideas from actual businesses, organizations, and individuals.

Why We Need Your Help:

By reaching our  $7,000 goal it will enable us to thoroughly proofread the Almanac’s content with expert support.  While being able to make a nice layout and design.

By reaching $20,000 we can have Perspective: The Magazine as a monthly magazine printed via Ebook.  

By supporting this project you are supporting not only a new concept but a new breed of authors like Perspective founder, Paul Rothbein.

 It is not like supporting an established person like Spike Lee who doesn't need to use Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

We want Perspective to be a great publication and to thoroughly proofread everything to make sure it is not mediocre in any capacity.

We also need to ensure that the content is clear so that people will understand that even though facts are referenced in stories , the stories are based on the hypothetical and did not really happen even though they are presented as if they actually did occur.

I am going to need to pay other people, including experts, to review the content. One of our main contributors and consultants will be Michael Tomczyk. Professor Tomczyk is a retired Ivy League school professor and respected technology futurist through his activities as Managing Director of the Mack Institute for Innovation Management at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Tomczyk.

If there is any delay in getting each book published by March we will provide a PDF of an incomplete version of each book. Until each book is completely ready.
