Research ResourcePosted: June 15, 2011
It ain’t pretty, but there’s a lot of content.
I was recently introduced to this incredible research resource called “Shaping Tomorrow”. Apparently it has only recently become accessible to for free to a general audience, and now the enormous database of information is available to anyone who signs up.
The website has 1000s of authors, academics and professional researchers that all contribute content around key areas of research. The content is then tagged with a range of different “forecasting” information to identify the strength of the “signal” and the forecasted impact, immediate or future. This is all an emerging language for me, and Shaping Tomorrow has a bunch of resources that I’m beginning to go through to help educate you to use the site. There is also a service for companies to order reports of specific research, or to create personal feeds around desired topics.
I’m looking forward to exploring deeper.
