"1000 Year Business Planning: 5 Entrepreneurial Analog StartUps."

"In every industry, big problems are just big StartUps waiting to happen." S.H. Rodman

Whatever it is -- think many decades or centuries ahead, and begin the StartUp now for the Analog Off-the-Grid versions. 

1000 Year Business Plan thinking at its best. You'll be more successful than you think. Maybe outrageously successful. (Note:  List of the world's oldest companies...)  

1000 Year Entrepreneurial Thinking: Whatever it is, scoop up all of the Analog versions now. Get creative with modifications for super-ecological eras -- sustainability that lasts 1000's of years, or bust. Literally.
(Side Note: These ideas may sound simplistic or crazy, but in my corporate days I reported in at the CIO level and I tended to be known as the "crazy ideas" strategist who focused most on ideas that proved to be running about 5 - 10 years ahead of the curve. This was a habit. It was also a reputation because they tended to pan out as trends.  
I was so early to nanotech, for instance--actually got to meet Eric Drexler and Christine Peterson--amazing conversations, amazing people anticipating caution as well as how to manufacture at the micro level, decades out ( in S.F.) 
Right now I sense that extreme "sustainability" vectors will become THE vectors -- and analog is going to be reinvented or transformed to accomodate new forms of communication and lifestyle -- mechanics transformed where tech isn't sustainable 1000's of years -- from an ecological life systems perspective. Get there early and put on your "right brain" thinking cap -- we're not likely to be in logical/linear territory much longer... 
Right now I'm working on mind-shift to higher creative intelligence without using any chemistry or new tech and thus the Right Brain Aerobics and Right Brain Think Tank experiments. No time to work on new StartUp ideas. So I'm putting any that pop up into this 1000 Year Business Plan blogs -- a useful bin for forward thinking things.... Hope they might spark an idea for you here and there... Integrating concepts to create a long-lasting planetary and interplanetary future. If you're thinking along these lines, you can submit a Guest Blog -- time's awastin' even in 1000 Year paradigms. -- SHR)

5 Entrepreneurial Analog StartUp ideas for today...

More open-sourcing of innovative ideas -- just give attribution -- and go for it!  

1000 Year Planning -- may include a lot of Analog Alternatives -- and Analog Cars may become a "hot" item, as "car hacking" is on the rise...

Hey, if you're going to drive around in a moving computer, essentially, you're going to experience more than one kind of "crash" as well as being "hacked" -- or getting a "Car Virus." Will there be massive security breaches of -- Cars... 

Crazy things you'll become familiar with that could lead some to Analog Versions... 

Digital Car Security... Is going to be a new industry. Get there fast. Well, before the paparzzi. 

Digital Cars are Paparazzi heaven...

Corollaries: Connected Cars are bound to lead to a Facebook for Cars. 
Can your car Tweet? In the Internet-of-Things it could tweet your Toaster--but could it be hacked?   
The prepared #Entrepreneur will be ready for every possibility. And potential StartUp growing from the unintended consequences of trying to digitally connect everything without thinking first about the, well, unintended consequences.

1. Analog Car Rentals... Or Sales.

Want to offer an alternative to Highway Robbery and Car Hacking?

Share your Analog Car with others or go Off-the-Digital-Grid in your car. An Uber for Analog Cars. Or maybe Uber will add Analog car rides.  Just for fun. 

(Humans: Analog Car Drivers...after Driverless Cars are mandated...)

Like untraceable pre-paid cell phones, the Analog Car may become trendy for "get aways" in every sense. 

Your Classic Car taking up space in your Classic Car Showcase garage? It could be a Luxury Analog Car Rental.

Possible Memes...

  • Highway Getaway
  • Have Car, Will Travel Off-the-Digital Grid
  • Off-the-Grid Living will be incomplete without your Off-the-Digital-Grid Car...
Entrepreneurs: Buy up/modify analog cars for possible future modification -- or Soap-Box-Derby hobbyists -- could have a field day.

Entrepreneurs: Solar Cars re-engineered from used cars?  Unhackable and cheap. But wait -- how about...

1000 Year Business Plan... Can we have fun -- and beyond -- by storyboarding design for "crazy idea" projects projected out for centuries?  And share them to see if anyone wants to extrapolate strategies or biz projects from them...

Drawing out the creation, franchising--planning to develop sustainably, maximize multidimensional diversity, cultures, maximize interest for all generations, spots for creating arts and music, experiments, or to create video/VR blogs--and let it morph over time as blogs and tweets and video become something new...

Would it be possible to create Inns of the 21st Century looking ahead not 10 years but 100 years or 1000 years as we create...?

In the List of World's Oldest Companies... Hotels, Pubs and Restaurants are at the top of the list... Thinking about how to sustain a healthy, green 1000 year business could get us thinking about different models. Present trends + long-term sustainable global business models/ecology.

  • Air BNB in 1000 Years...?
  • Uber in 1000 Years...?
  • Pubs and Inns in 1000 Years...?
  • Overlap...?
  • Sustainability and ecology, healthy food & environments?

“Will Quantum Computing Disrupt Business, Society, & Mind? 3 Key Questions.” 1000 Year Business Thinking


“Will Quantum Computing Disrupt Business, Society, & Mind? 3 Key Questions.” 1000 Year Business Thinking at a Whole New Level…

S.H. Rodman, CEO, Right Brain Aerobics

From “Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness,” Bruce Rosenblum & Fred Kuttner, University of California, Santa Cruz…

“Quantum theory is the most stunningly successful theory in all of science. Not a single one of its predictions has ever been wrong. Quantum mechanics has revolutionized our world. One-third of our economy depends on products based on it. However, this physics can look like mysticism. Quantum experiments display an enigma that challenge our classical worldview. The worldview demanded by quantum theory is, to borrow the words of J.B.S. Haldane, not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose…”

With companies such as Google & IBM currently leading the way, we are closer every month to solving technical problems and enabling quantum computing. It can lead to new speeds – but also new paradigms, languaging, AI and psychology. (Google Milestone - - IBM showing off a Quantum Computing Chip – MIT Tech Review. )

Are we looking at a new reality…? Analogy: Societies and psychologies before science, and after; before human space flight, and after.


Will quantum computing lead to the transformation of human identity
as well as perceptions of human reality?



Quantum Computing is coming—but as Physics professors Rosenblum & Kuttner well describe in non-technical terms in their excellent introductory book of 2006—is there a “boundary where the particular expertise of physicists is no longer a sure guide”?

Yet neither do psychologists generally consider their purview to be these outer reaches of consciousness impact on quantum physics experiments, explorations in quantum mechanics. Nor do AI specialists. Should they? Should we? 


As quantum computing and quantum business realities approach,
how informed do we want to be? Will we be observers –
or participants?


Do we want to know about the potential implications & consequences of unimaginable high speeds enabling unfathomable processing power and artificial intelligence? Butting heads with the same “quantum enigmas” and “spooky action at a distance” which still excite physicist investigators as they did Albert Einstein!

But more significant may be the impact of the development of required new human conceptual/contextual intelligence for quantum computing/inventions -- expanding creative intelligence to innovate, invent, experiment, and research far beyond common societal perceptions of reality; common cultural concepts; the current ability to imagine a visible reality.

In a sense: Quantum Computing is more about imagination and creativity in the invisible realities than the visible! How will this transform intelligence? Politics? Creativity? Education?
