To Our Readers: On the Future of Futurism
You're about to see some changes around here. We hope you'll hang around to see them.
Futurism Readers –
We’ve got some news. Like the rest of the writing on this site, we’re giving you the need-to-know, sharp and succinct:
We need your help to survive.
- Beginning today, the journalism and news-gathering of Futurism.com is going behind a metered paywall. Subscriptions, which can be found here, start at less than $1.25 a week.
- We’ll also be launching our new exclusive video platform, IdeaFront.
Here’s the deal: When the future comes, you gotta adapt, or get relegated to the dustbin of history. Yet the economic realities of both 2020 and the media industry have spelled out, ultimately, a need for us to appeal to our readers for support. Because we don’t plan on going anywhere.
And about our community? As a Futurism reader, you’re among a global crowd that constitutes engineers, scientists, physicists, entrepreneurs, industrialists, students, teachers, journalists, and of course, Joe Rogan.
We’re hoping you’ll stick with us, and support us in our work: The feature writing of Futurism.com, the market-moving news digest of The Byte, the latest in cutting-edge medical science technology of Neoscope; interviews, trendpieces, and reported investigative features, from a qualified team of career journalists. We’ve also been polling you all, to see what you’d like to hear more about from us, and we’ll be responding in kind, giving you the latest news and discoveries shaping the world of tomorrow, today.
Which brings us to some exciting news: IdeaFront, the new video platform from our partners at SU. It’ll be launching with an original library of shows and features, built for those who want to get closer to the precipice of what comes next. You’ll be watching interviews with earthmovers, the most innovative minds in the world, speaking from just over the horizons of technology and science. From artificial intelligence to automated travel, from quantum computing to quark collisions, from machine learning to Mars terraforming, IdeaFront will deliver critical insights and intelligence from the leaders building the next technological paradigms by which we’ll live.
We’re excited to take the next step of our journey, with the involvement of you — the readership and community of future-forward thinkers, movers, and shakers — more central to our mandate than ever before. Subscribe to Futurism today. Together, we’ll continue to shed light on the stories of the technological and scientific news shaping the universe to come, reporting live from the horizons of innovations, and there’s nobody we’d rather share a seat with it on than than you.
To tomorrow, today,
– Team Futurism
