The Future - and how to detect it...


Floorball is not just a sport. It is a new sport.
This makes the attempts to charm the world rather exciting.
To fully understand the dimensions of the sport, and the paradigm shift itself as well on how the future will look like - is not just only to take what already happened at places like Finland and Sweden and then say this will happen in USA and China too.

No, we think you must have a larger understanding of how to spot the future - or what actually creates the future.
This is almost as intriguing as Floorball in itself.

There is some knowledge in this area that we perhaps will dive deeper into and dwell upon, to see how Floorball as a phenomena stack up against the seven rules on how to spot the future... as defined by Mr. Goetz.

For today though, we will quote Tim O'Reilly, a visionary computer guy as he was interviewed for the Wired Magazine this spring for his ideas on how to predict the future:
Who he is? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_O'Reilly

"I don’t really think I spot the future; I spot the things in the present that tell us something about the future. I look for interesting people. I find the cool kids and then say, what are they doing?
The myth of innovation is that it starts with entrepreneurs, but it really starts with people having fun. The Wright brothers weren’t trying to build an airline, they were saying, "Holy shit, do you think we could fly?" The first kids who made snowboards, they just glued skis together and said, "Let’s try this!" "
Now watch this the full 4 min movie please:



We do not think Mr. O'reilly have seen this - but we are certain he think it is as cool as we do.

NOW, you do the rest of the thinkin' and hey Mikzuu - thanks!

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
