Future Tense

A Slate Magazine/ASU/New America Foundation Partnership on Transformative Technology

What is Future Tense?

Future Tense is a partnership between the New America Foundation, Arizona State University and Slate magazine to explore emerging technologies and their transformative effects on society and public policy. Central to the partnership is a series of events in Washington, D.C., that take in-depth, provocative looks at issues that, while little-understood today, will dramatically reshape the policy debates of the coming decade.
