About 20 Minutes into the Future

“Now, I'm no librarian, in fact, I don't know what star sign I am. But, as a famous person once said, ‘You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.’ And as I - another more famous person - once said, ‘If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like.’“ — Max Headroom

Fight for a better tomorrow today

20 Minutes Into The Future is a critical look at how technology is shaping our lives today and what actions we can take for a better tomorrow. It is written by Daniel Harvey, a digital product designer currently based in London. But he lived in NYC for 20 years so expect him to say “fuck” an awful lot.
