New Futurismic Column: Ethical Futurism

My November column for Futurismic is now up, asking the question, what does it mean to be an ethical futurist?

...the first duty of an ethical futurist is to act in the interests of the stakeholders yet to come -- those who would suffer harm in the future from choices made in the present.

I know that a number of professionals in the field read Open the Future occasionally, and I'd be quite interested to get your reaction in particular to the essay.
