I am currently putting together my website and the FATE institute’s own website in between working as an intern at SeymourPowellForesight. A product develpoment design consultancy with a team of strategists and ethnographers that work with a number of companies to establish what their company is and what it could be in the future. Its going to be an interesting few months involving a number of learning curves and in some ways extremely different and very similar from what i have been doing with the FATE institute and my last internship(to be documented on my website) in summer 2006 working with DTI Foresight on a project dealing with obesity.(soon to be launched in October at the RSA)
