Institute For The Future

I'm at the Institute For The Future (IFTF) in Palo Alto today. Whenever I would read about IFTF in newspapers, I'd think of a large, quiet place with thinkers like Paul Saffo contemplating the future and giving newspaper interviews.

But I realized yesterday that the address is 124 University Ave in Palo Alto, and so it can't be a really large place.

It isn't. It's a nice facility, but not very large or very quiet. It's basically a smallish conference center with a few meeting rooms. The folks who run it are probably spending a lot of time recruiting companies to use their facilities.

Futurists have to eat too.
