Co-working spaces are popping up all over the world, social and creative hubs for people who want to get out of their basements and into a professional workspace but don’t want to take on the costs of rent and equipment on their own. And like 1871 in Chicago, they have also become important creative hubs and business incubators.

Candidate John Lutz is... Going Somewhere

Chicago—Earlier today, John Lutz nearly announced his candidacy to assumed billions of Internet viewers and his purported Facebook friends: “My name is John Lutz and I’m announcing my candidacy because I’m #goingsomewhere”. An elderly relative was reported as saying, “I’m glad he’s going somewhere. I’d like my basement back.”

David Zach

David Zach is one of the few professionally trained futurists on this planet, having earned a master’s degree in Studies of the Future from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Of course that was way back in 1981, so it’s pretty much a history degree by now.
