Futurist

Futurist – Wikipedia

Today the term futurist most commonly describes authors, consultants, organizational leaders and others who engage in interdisciplinary and systems thinking to advise private and public organizations on such matters as diverse global trends, plausible scenarios, emerging market opportunities, and risk management.

I fell upon this the other day and it’s one of the reasons I blog. You never know what you are going to discover and it nearly always is food for thought. I didn’t know you could get a job as a futurist. Maybe I should think about it. What I did think about is how we are changing jobs and job descriptions and it’s certainly a sign of the changing world we live in. So I thought about blogging, because that is becoming widely accepted and pretty mainstream. Surely there will be new job titles just from blogging?
