The Next Wave is my personal blog. I use it from time to time to write about drivers of change, trends, emerging issues, and other futures and scenarios topics. I work for the London-based consultancy The Futures Company (formerly Henley Centre HeadlightVision), where I specialise in futures and digital media. (Its blog is here).
A little background: I started as a financial journalist for BBC Radio 4’s Financial World Tonight, before moving to Channel 4 News during the 1980s. From there I spent some time in current affairs production and the independent sector, before being hired in 1993 by the cable company Videotron to launch Britain’s first interactive television television channel.
After Videotron was acquired by Cable and Wireless Communications I was assigned to the digital television development programme, and joined The Henley Centre (as it then was) in 1999, when I realised I’d had enough of CWC’s unique approach to project management. I still maintain an interest in digital media and in the notion of the creative economy. Occasional articles, about futures, about the digital and creative economy, and other topics of interest, can be found here.
I also have a small side blog, Around the Edges, which I started in early 2008, for notes and thoughts which don’t fit into this futures blog.
