I am Jerome Glenn. Ask me anything about running an international futurist organization, teaching at Singularity University or working with Isaac Asimov.
My name is Jason and I’ve been spending this summer working as an intern at the Millennium Project. The Millennium Project is a global futures study organization. Every year, they put out a report called the State of the Future. You can learn more about that here.
My boss for the summer has been Jerome Glenn and he is honestly one of the most fascinating people I have ever met. He spearheaded the creation of this organization as a way to get humanity to collectively think about our future. In my entire time here, I have not been able to find a single topic that he couldn’t shed light on, from self driving cars to neural networks to the politics of the separate regions of China. I suggest asking him about any future related topic you are curious about.
There are also several other cool things you can talk to him about. The Millennium Project is currently launching a Collective Intelligence system, which is a better way to integrate the knowledge from top experts around the world on various topics. He is far better at explaining it than I am however, so I will leave that to him.
Additionally, he has lived a fascinating life. He has contributed text to a book with Isaac Asimov, become a certified witch doctor in Africa and is a champion boomerang thrower. He has also met many of the big names in the futurist community.
Ask away. Mr. Glenn will be logging on at 4:00 PM Eastern Standard to answer your questions

Edit 2: Forgot to mention that its Mr. Glenn's birthday. Make sure to wish him happy birthday. Also, he just came down and said that these questions are way better than the questions he normally gets, so keep up the good work.
