Tales from the CyberSalon – #2 A New High Street

The Crunch is the story I wrote for the CyberSalon event on the future of the high street. It’s one of those stories where the more I researched and thought about the future of our communal spaces, our town centres, the more layers I wanted to include in the story.

But, with only six minutes reading time to play with—well, see for yourself.

The Crunch – now available on Medium.


The Downloadable Brain

I was really pleased to be asked to write a story for Cognitive Sensations’, The Downloadable Brain.

William Dreams was the result.

At the launch event I talked about the inspirations behind the story, including how the power of human dreaming, collaborations with A.I. rather than competition, and scenario planning for smart cities could coalesce in the future.


William Dreams is published by Cognitive Sensations and free to read.
