For Dr. Kane, “…this space is where the speed of light generation operates.”
  • The Futures Channel was founded in 1999 with the goal of using new media technologies to create a channel between the scientists, engineers, explorers and visionaries who are shaping the future, and today’s learners who will one day succeed them.
