Back to the Future: The Future’s Bright, The Future’s Social #likeminds


Share on LinkedIn

Today is the one-year anniversary of this blog give or take a few days. Phew! That year flew by really quick.

It’s been a huge learning curve for me……. about blogging, customer centric growth, expressing ideas, writing, social media and all things business and web related.

To date I’ve posted 225 times, received just short of 1,000 comments and, according to, is ranked #333,512 in the world according to the three-month Alexa traffic rankings, whilst the site is ranked #16,662 in the UK, where it is estimated that 58% of its visitors are located.

It’s been a lot of work but hugely rewarding and I have met some incredible people. If you are reading this then the likelihood is that you are one of them. If not, then do leave a comment and just say Hi!

However, I don’t want to dwell on that as I’ve not finished with the blog and am thinking about what I want to achieve over the coming year. More on that later.

What I want to share with you today is a talk by Robin Wight called The Future’s Bright, The Future’s Social that was given at the recent Likeminds conference down in Exeter.

Robin’s talk, which is worth watching and listening to just for his gold shirt and purple suit, is about what are learning from human evolution, sociology, anthropology, technology and psychology and the future of our societies and why the future is necessarily social.

If you are interested in why developing a more human and relationship centric way of doing business is paramount, watch this talk. It’s definitely, worth it.


For me, Robin does a great job of summing up what is happening on our societies and what is being fueled by technology that surrounds us. It’s back to basics. Back to the Future?
