        Subject: Technologies, societies, personal growth

Willard

The clock she ticks. The solstice passes. Now as I grow older, unlike in my
earlier years, imagining the future doesn't involve seeing myself personally
active in it. But I am curious what they might be doing then. And having read a
little Afrofuturism of late[1], I wonder what, if any, set of questions that
would be preoccupying digital humanists in the decades to come, wondering it
there might not be the equivalent to Hilbert's 1900 problems. What questions
does this generation will to the next?



[1]
Ytasha L. Womack. _Aftrofuturism_. "Hope, much like imagination, comes at a
premium. The cost is a life where more is expected. Where more is expected, new
actions are required. The audacity of hope, the bold declaration to believe, and
clarity of vision for a better life and world are the seeds to personal growth,
revolutionized societies, and life-changing technologies."
