The Next Billion Seconds is a book written by futurist Mark Pesce. The premise of the book is that the wireless-and-everywhere network brings us new powers of connecting, sharing, learning and doing, although we are unequipped for the massive change that will come about. Mr. Pesce posits that the next billion seconds will see more change than the previous sixty thousand years. The book is meant to be a kind of field guide to the future, providing the tools needed to make the most of the tumultuous, explosive and epochal next billion seconds. The book is accompanied by workshops, lectures, and possible television programs.
Dan was consulted with Mr. Pesce on formulating the logo and stylistic approach of all the graphical materials related to The Next Billion Seconds. He created a style guide from which all future materials would be based on.
