I'm currently trying to break into one end of the futurist spectrum by
becoming a technology analyst. The prediction, and impact analysis, of
technological trends is something that I've been doing as part of my
routine job for some years now, and I've decided its the part I like best.
So, I've lately been trying to find a stint that concentrates on that. So
far, I've had a few nibbles, but no luck.
