Abundance ~ Creating Hopeful Future ASAP!

In the cornucopian doomslayer spirit of Julian Simon and John McCarthy and G Harry Stine, the X-Prize & Singularity U founder-chairman Peter Diamandis and co-author Steven Kotler pre-launch their new book Abundance spotlighting four powerful mutually-reinforcing forces that should enable humanity to maximize progress towards a far more hopeful future...
  1. Exponential Technologies ~ Fast changing transformations;
  2. DIY Innovation ~ Democratizing invention and action;
  3. Techno-Philanthropy ~ Young, wealthy activists;
  4. Rising Billion ~ New creative minds online.
Here's Peter describing Abundance... Plus book trailer... (Thanks to Ray Kurzweil for the FYI!-)
