Join us in part two of our marvelous conversation with Dr. Genevieve Bell, full-time anthropologist, and part-time futurist, as we explore ideas, technology and the futures we create.
If you haven’t checked out part one, you might want to do that. In this the second part of our conversation, Genevieve speaks lyrically about the global dance of ideas, computational dreaming and the value of always being curious.
It was a privilege and a pleasure to speak with Genevieve and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
