This could be interesting, and a big win for both Colbert and CBS…if it happens.

Please god no this would be such a waste of everything Colbert does.  I love Letterman, and I love Late Night, but what Colbert does on his own show is so much more important than telling jokes and interviewing celebrities.

Open the Future: Watching the World through a Broken Lens

warrenellis:

"This is not a dilemma without a solution, however. Professional Foresight (aka Futurism) also went through a period where specialists would offer up a single prediction of a certain future. In more recent decades — arguably since Hermann Kahn’s On Thermonuclear War in 1960, but more generally since the advent of Shell-derived Scenario Planning in the 1990s — futurism has been more comfortable with uncertainty, and more willing to offer multiple rival forecasts of possible outcomes instead of singular, certain predictions. Multi-scenario foresight has evolved various iterations since then, but they all come down to a core idea: you can’t predict the future, but you can see the shape of different possible futures."
