The Alchemy of Wasted Time: Managing The Dream/Work Balance

We are at an important juncture in our technological and social evolution that requires focus and acumen and something else: poetry, imagination, and daydreaming. 
 
This talk presents a way for us – the makers and thinkers of the science fiction present – to organize our activities so as to include healthy portions of the arts and humanities, experimentation, and daydreaming. Creating and maintaining a healthy dream/work balance will ensure that our emerging machine environments are centered on us, and not us on them.
