Welcome to Yellow Canary Land 🐤 (yes, the emoji is part of the title), a monthly Substack newsletter about global media and technology futures. Like the proverbial canary in a coal mine, a yellow canary event is like a flashing warning sign for more danger ahead. It is a signal that is itself insightful, but to an expert is doubly so because of the conditions it reveals.
This newsletter is a look at societal trends, with a focus on the future of media and technology from a global perspective. It’s ostensibly about some distant tomorrow, but really, it’s about how the forces of our yesterdays and todays are likely to shape the times to come. I get some things right, many things wrong, and I learn a lot along the way.
