About Jane McConnell
Looking back for a moment
First, a quick look at the past…
From Nebraska to ProvenceBorn in Nebraska, young days in Arizona, university in California, and professional life in France for several decades. I now live in Provence, minutes away from the Roman Pont du Gard. The dignity and timelessness of the site are a constant reminder of the balance we all need between the past and the present. A little more here.
Now on to the future!
Here is where I am heading today.
Future2043I have conducted a global survey – short and simple – with just 16 questions! You can read a short description on my Substack newsletter: Imagine ourselves in 2043.
I am exploring how people in different countries imagine the future will be in 20 years. I’ll publish the report in the third quarter of 2023.
In this spirit, I am preparing a podcast and new website, and will update you here soon.
I joined the Long Now foundation in 2021, a non-profit established in 01996 to foster long term thinking.
I have also joined the Mars Society, the world’s largest and most influential space advocacy organization dedicated to the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars.
My first book, in 1996
I co-authored L’avantage internet pour l’entreprise in 1996. It was the first book in French about internet for non-technical people. It was translated into Portuguese. The title in English is something like “The internet edge for companies”. It sold out fast!
