The Silicon Valley Tarot

The Futurist

The Futurist

Bolstered by a knowledge of the present and past, the futurist consults his crystal ball - or whatever stochastic modeling software passes for same - and tries to divine the future. His rates are high, and he has little to show for his work. Still, he's very entertaining at company parties and staff meetings. Is he a wise man, or only a jester? Anticipation, vision, foresight, alchemy. Reversed: eccentricity, hubris, con-artistry.
