It’s enough to look at the predictions from 2019 (that didn’t see Covid coming…) to understand how big trends can missed due to an unpredictable sequence of events. But if anything, predictions offer us a forward looking view into existing trends, by extending the line from today to a near future. I collected some of the more interesting tech predictions for the coming year in so...

I’m reminded of the concept behind the book “Antifragile” by Nassim Taleb, the same author behind “The Black Swan” theory. His premise is that there are people/organizations/governments that can become stronger after a major upheaval. In other words, they’re “antifragile.” The real estate industry has ...
