Education Event Navigation


We will be holding interest group meetings on Wednesday, January 6 from 4:30-6:30pm these can manifest in two ways:

1. You can meet with a small group to discuss a specific topic, email juniper@santafe.edu with potential topics for discussion groups and to sign up for topics
2. Or you can use this time to have an in-depth one-on-one meeting with a participant that is of interest to you (I will distribute a participant list)

Please submit interest group topics before 12:00pm Wednesday, January 6. We will post sign up sheets over lunch on the 6th.

forecasting consumer trends

As an example, in the past decade bookstores have been closing, people buy books on Amazon, switch to ebooks etc. However, there is a very recent trend that people are moving back to buying paper books away from ebooks and that some used bookstores are flourishing. Also library usage has fluctuated, and in some cases escalated due to walk-in users who need the internet. I know this is a very specific example, but is there a way to use complexity to better understand these trends and look at the big picture?
