Here are some of my post popular posts and essays on this blog:

.
  • The Coming Boom and Bust of Design Thinking:  A post I wrote at end of 2010 about how 2011 would be the year that design thinking blew up and blew away.  Prescient, given how the fade has largely passed already.
.
  • Drawing a Better Panarchy Diagram:  A series of downloadable graphics of Gunderson & Holling’s “Panarchy Cycle of Adaptive Change”, for use and re-use in whatever way you like.
.
  • The Oxford Future of Cities Scenarios:  A report from a scenarios project I conducted with the University of Oxford on the future of cities, including PDF’s, Powerpoints and summary graphics.
.
  • My Complete PhD, Online:  Full text and summary slides of my PhD dissertation, “Large Scale Participatory Futures Systems: A Comparative Study of Online Scenario Planning Approaches”, defended successfully at MIT on August 29, 2011.
.
  • On Glass & Mud: A Critique of (Bad) Corporate Design Fiction: An invective against “thin” corporate futures thinking, picking on Corning’s “A Day Made of Glass” in particular.  Generated some buzz in design fiction / futures circles for a little while, sparking some very interesting debate and discussion.
