Greetings everyone, here is the next edition of my newsletter. 
First, if you’re in London next week please join me for the ‘Technology versus Humanity’ book launch on Sept 8 (this is a free event and almost all seats are now reserved so click now or never:) or for this special London Futurists event on Sept 10.  Find out more about my new book here, order it with a final pre-release discount via my publisher (bulk deals, too) here, and read my brand-new 'TVH memes and bottom-lines’ summary here.
Second, just in case you are close-by, the world premier of my new interactive live program (finally, sans clicker and the conventional slide-deck marathon) called The Future Show Live will happen at SIBOS / Innotribe 2016 in Geneva, on September 28 - watch out for the video recording soon afterwards. With TFSLive we will attempt nothing less than to redefine the very meaning of 'keynote presentation’.
Thanks for being a subscriber, and if you enjoy my updates please share this newsletter as widely as possible using the links below.
