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.
If you're pissed about the current state of tech and want to see us do better then you’ve found a kindred spirit. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. I intend to publish 500-ish words every week or two on Tuesdays.
What people are saying about 20 Minutes into the Future
Before the launch
and kind words after the launch
I'm Head of Product Design & Brand at The Dots which TechCrunch has called the "LinkedIn for Creatives." Before that I held executive roles at R/GA, SapientNitro, and Zone. In those roles I've worked with major tech companies like Google, Twitter, Apple, and more.
At The Dots we've created a diverse community by design. It is 61% female, 31% BAME, 16% LGBT+, and 12% neurodiverse. We take systematic and curatorial steps to maintain a safe space for our community. Niche networks with new business models are possible and they're a vital way forward for tech.
I write and speak about design and tech at Fast Company, The Drum, SXSW, and IxDA. I am a passionate advocate for diversity and sit on the board for Creative Equals. I’m committed to building a better tomorrow today.
I've worked in tech and online communities for over 20 years. I'm using that experience to write a newsletter that is worth your time and attention. Thank you for your consideration.
