How to think about the future -- event in London 3 May 2013

In case anyone is in London this Friday night, 3 May 2013, I'll be taking part in a public panel discussion and question and answer session along with Nate Silver, author of the bestseller The Signal and the Noise. Other panellists will be Robert Fildes, director of the Forecasting Centre, Lancaster Business School, Gregory Mead, CEO and co-founder of Musicmetric and Jessica Bland (Chairperson), in charge of Technology Futures at the London-based and forward-thinking charity Nesta. The event will run from 18:00 to 20:00 at Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, EC1V London. Topic: how to think about the future in which technology and data is rapidly amplifying the possibilities of making predictions.

Yes, I'm am talking about THE famous Shoreditch Town Hall, which was of course the first building in the UK to be fitted with electricity (at least Jessica Bland said so).
