“Migrant Watch”????

As part of our project on what Australian television and its society will look like in 2018, we also need to consider the broader global outlook and how it interplays with models for governance, communication technologies and the needs of transforming cultures.

Will we, in Australia, be using our advanced communication systems in 2019 for a benign system of border control and protection? And will it result in cyber terrorist revenge from those denied access to our shores?

This is suggested in one of the video “scenarios” posed by an online forecasting game and “futures” project, Supersruct, developed by the Institute for the Future, a not-for-profit think tank based in Palo Alto, California (see the video scenario, “Generation Exile”).
