Track Trends Like A Futurist

How do Futurists see what's coming before it has arrived? Partially, it's by subscribing to feeds and resources known for being the first to discover new and potential trends.

I have compiled over 100 of my favourite resources for discovering the future that include everything from an AI that analyses culture (Sparks & Honey) through to the team working on what the world might look like up to 10,000 years from now  (The Long Now Foundation). There's also a bunch of tastemakers and aggregators worth following for some of the industries I track.
