The Future Always Arrives

…with the least unexpected, and as always it brings baggage

We are back to continue our safari in the Technojungle. Please keep in mind that this website is a prepublication of the books as explained at the beginning of The Future Never Arrives.

As I was editing this book for the last time and publishing the first book, the idea struck me for a third book. I am gathering material which I hope will lead to writing the third book. This project just continues to grow.

As I prepare for formal layout of the first book, publish the second book here, and work towards a third book, I am also working to develop some of my own graphics for the books. While considering an alternative road sign in book one, I suddenly wondered if I could adapt a version of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. This led me to discover that it is part of a design movement call Googie. It began in the late 1940s and faded in popularity during the mid-1960s. I came to realize that the futuristic, atomic, space age inspired designs reflecting the optimism that technology was going to bring a wonderful future is exactly what I grew up following and it thus exactly what these books are about. Googie is to become the motif-theme of the books.

As you can see, my future is full. I have plenty to work on. See you in the Technojungle.

Edit: A third book, if it happens, is pushed further into the future as I continue to finalize the first two books and perhaps the workbook.
