ThrowForward Thursday 107: How to NOT have a REALLY bad day (grey elephants, chaos monkey & wizards)

In last week's ThrowForward Thursday episode we looked at one of the truly BAD days in history, 60 million years ago when a meteor hit Mexico and 75% of life on earth was wiped out. Bad... that's an understatement. We looked at NASA is doing to make sure that doesn't happen while we are here. Watch that video here: Imagining worst case scenarios is a key aspect of 'Thinking Like a Futurist', and in this episode I show you three tools you can use to do this:

  • Grey Elephants (by which we mean highly probable, high impact and yet ignored threats in the near future)

  • Chaos Monkeys (a technique started at Netflix to test their systems)

  • What if Wizards
