Five Regions of the Future. Joel Barker, president of Infinity Limited, Inc.,I haven't been successful in getting anymore information on Joel Barker's book, so I'm guessing it has yet to be released. Found lots of teasers for the book, and he seems very adept at self promotion, which is neither here nor there, just an observation. Also, I can't seem to locate a web presence for Infinity Limited, Inc., which seems ironic given how often is press releases mention the company.
wowed the closing plenary by introducing five regions of the future he calls
TechnoEcology. Different world views determine the technologies that are
emphasized. SuperTech stresses technological solutions; LimitsTech stresses
limits to growth and conservation thinking; LocalTech is centered on
community-based solutions; NatureTech takes its design cues from the biological
world; and HumanTech supersedes and surrounds the other regions and relies
upon breakthroughs and insights in human consciousness. His new system will
be described in an upcoming book, Five Regions of the Future.
