Welcome! I am pleased about your visit!
Who am I?
I am the founder and editor of the utopia collector, Susanne Gold. As a consultant for innovation communication at Siemens AG, I have an excellent knowledge of the state of the art in technical research and the trends that set the pace for the future.
As a graduate social scientist, I am interested in the social relevance of technical research.
I seek utopia in technology
What value do the complex technologies of our time deliver to our society? How can you improve our living together? That’s what drives me. That’s why we have this future and science blog, this visionary network and think tank.
I put this blog online at the end of 2017 to collect dreams for a new world. If someone had told me at the beginning that we would be a whole team only two years later, I would not have believed it.
Words are my passion. Spoken. Written. Read. Strung together.
I am fascinated by their simultaneous fleetingness and permanence: words fade so quickly – but they can still have an effect for so long.
That is why I have been telling stories since I can speak and writing since I learned to write. 1975 – on a journey – I started my first diary. The form of my records has changed many times over the years.
My cellar is full of pages described. Recordings against the respective background of the time – snapshots from my life and environment. I was born in 1967. All these pages – are “drawings” of my impressions and thoughts. I don’t like to throw any of it away. Digitalisation is a blessing for me. Store images and text on a memory card: Ingenious!
During my training in a Hamburg law firm I heard many sentences. I was something of a “doorman” there: whether explanations from criminals, hesitant words from traumatized victims, accusations from deeply injured spouses or a civil law “trifle” – all these words were first addressed to me in order to gain admission: Many words and many fates!
I also always knew the file for this – with all the psychological reports and decisions. After all, I was the secretary of the office and thus also the master of the inbox and telephone.
I began to ask myself why people do things – or refrain from doing them? To tell or not to tell?
Later – in Munich – I studied sociology, psychology and criminology – humanities are a wonderful study. They “train” the mind, the ability to abstract supposed normality. However, they do not provide valid answers. At least not if mathematics – statistics – is not consulted.
Sociologists are known for the fact that nobody knows what they are actually doing. Because there is no clear job description, they can be found at all conceivable places of work. I work in the communications department of a technology group, where I deal with research topics and future trends. Exciting for me – because technology changes people.
Historically, innovations have always been triggers for social change. From the ability to make fire – to the complex technologies of our time: they bring about cultural changes – and also change the characters of people as they adapt to their new environment.
What world will we find when we have finished what we have just begun: The creation of a digital twin of our environment with a new life form inside – artificial intelligence?
I would like to record something of this change. I’m writing it down!
