Anybody interested in experience design or new digital media should definitely check out Superstruct. The idea behind it is that its 2019 and the world is new serious problems and we need to figure out how to save humankind from extinction. Through blogs, videos, forums and anything else user-generated people post how it effects their lives and what they're doing about it. Superstruct starts Oct. 6th technically, but there are some mini events they're doing starting yesterday.
Ten-Year Forecast developed it and it looks like they have some more plans like this for the near future.
