In the last Future Today newsletter I published a Google Drive folder that Ci En and Gonzalo Gregori had created with more than 100 trend reports on different topics. Many of you wrote to me thanking me for sharing it and some of you asked me for recommendations of specific trend reports. Below I list my top 3 trend reports, and not only for this year, these are the ones I look for every year:

Fjord Trends 2021

This year’s Fjord Trends are like no others that have gone before, shaped during a period of comprehensive, global uncertainty. Even in…


One of the things I admire the most is when someone manages to explain complex subjects in a simple way, simple but not simplistic. Someone with that ability not only denotes intelligence but wisdom. When I talk about this I always think of Richard Feynman and his nickname “The Great Explainer” for his ability to explain abstract concepts of the world of science in a simple way. Have you watched the video of the 4th dimension and the Tesseract?

Now I’m sharing with you the EconomicPrinciples.org platform of Ray Dalio, American billionaire, founder of Bridgewater Associates, hedge fund manager and…

Language creates reality and at a time when we are all connected, certain terms become buzzwords very quickly. In the world of innovation and strategic foresight we can find VUCA, resilience or even antifragility, systems thinking, problem solving, transformation or adaptation. The thing is that I’m finding in different places with very interesting people like Daniel C. Dennett or Dave Snowden, a word that I think could become one of those in the next few years: exaptation.

Exaptation is a term that comes from biology and was first used in 1982 in an article by Stephen Jay Gould and Elisabeth…

Those of you who know me know that one of my passions is to share knowledge in any format: from a lecture at a big event to informally with a good cold beer. …

In January 2018 I set myself two challenges: to catch up on everything that has to do with futurism: methodologies and tools; projects, initiatives and futurists; books, series and films; technologies such as IA, Blockchain, 3D printing… And to start sharing content again after more than two years of silence. Both challenges were mixed into a third challenge of authentic madness: to publish a daily article about futurism / transhumanism. And so it has been, although I haven’t managed to reach 365 articles… But I think that the 300 articles, about 100,000 readings in Medium, more than 10,000 likes in…


This year I had the opportunity to go to the Singularity University together with Mónica to participate in the ESADE course “Journey to Business Transformation”, where one of the fundamental points was Moonshot Thinking. In this article I will try to explain exactly what this “thinking” is, what frameworks there are to implement it out and I will give you an extra recommendation by Peter Diamandis on how to use it on a personal level and coinciding with the end of the year. Let’s start!

What is Moonshot Thinking?

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy gave a speech at Rice University where he delivered…


In November I published an article with Bill Gates’ 1999 predictions about the future of the technology. Now I’m sharing the ones Isaac Asimov did in 1983 about what the world would be like in the year 2019, very appropriate now that we are about to enter in that year. It’s an article he wrote for the Toronto Star answering the question “What will the world be like in 2019?” The moment was entirely appropriate coinciding with the 35th anniversary of George Orwell’s “1984” book. …


One of the most awaited compilations each year is the most popular TED Talks. In this article you have the 25 talks that had the most impact during 2018 and as you will see, I published many of them in Future Today as Simone Giertz and his useless robots, Steven Pinker and his reflections on the concept of progress or Kai-Fu Lee and his vision on Artificial Intelligence and humanity.

Here you have some highlighted talks but I recommend that you see all of them:
