….and myself. But this heads up isn’t self promotion. This is a topic worth exploring and these are some of the most interesting minds curated together in one place. I really think this initiative will yield some interesting insights as to how Facebook is influencing our daily lives and what it may look like in five years. I have some definitive opinions on the subject. Facebook’s growth is exponential and it’s future is dependent on how that growth can be sustained. The project itself is an interesting experiment. It’s being crowd-funded on Kickstarter which allows anyone to micro-finance projects such as this.

I’d keep an eye on this one if I were you. Vanessa and team are some of the smartest folks emerging on the scene and this project has legs. Have questions or opinions on the future of Facebook? Ironically you can express those on Quora.
