About Richard Samson & friends

Surf's up! ...



Catching the waves to better times

In spite of bad news and scary prospects, positive trends are mounting!


They're like forward-moving waves breaking on top of treacherous undertows. If we catch them, they can take us past the dangers to a sustainable new era.
With luck this could be life 2.0, an unprecedented higher level of mind, health, wealth, science and society.
On the downside, we could self-destruct or slog ahead in a grey middle zone.
A few friends and I are creating UPTIMES: Breaking trends for better days to help us make the best happen.

The content is being drawn from leading media sources and top experts as well as grass-roots innovators, artists, and changemakers of all types.
We'll include only good news that is worth your time, and only bad news when positive reactions are available.
Unlike today's deluge of excessively negative, commercial, and trivial news,  UPTIMES will present only what's vital and not to be overlooked. It's designed for serious, thinking people who want to get the big picture quicker and not miss anything.
The posts are filtered news for better understanding and action in less time. They are concise and practical, designed to help you benefit easily (almost automatically) while avoiding the undertows. 
You can get them through multiple channels:
>> UPTIMES on Patreon (Click the Posts tab)  
>> UPTIMES on Flipboard (Click for access)
>> UPTIMES on Medium (Click for access)
>> 
UPTIMES in your inbox (Click for notifications)

Also consider becoming a Patron. 


Your financial support will help us reach more people through Facebook, Apple News, LinkedIn, YouTube, and other platforms ... and ramp up in many other ways.

You'll also --
  • get special reports and aids for catching the uptrends,
  • connect with fellow changemakers, and
  • learn how to promote your service, product, or cause as part of the answer for better times.

You can become a patron for as little as $1 per month, and quit at any time!

If it's not for you, it's easy to cancel --
From the drop-down menu on the top right (the small circle with your image in it), click "Your Pledges" and you'll be taken to a page that shows all of your active Patreon pledges (including this one). Click "Edit Pledge" next to this pledge, then click "Delete Pledge."
But I think you'll find, after just a few days, that you feel a little better about the world and more engaged in making a difference.

Thanks for your consideration.

A little about me: 


I am Director of the  EraNova Institute and have served as consultant to IBM, AT&T, and other organizations. A futurist by inclination, my books include The Mind Builder, Creative Analysis, The Language Ladder, Mind Over Technology, and Highly-Human Jobs.

Published as Richard W. Samson as well as Dick Samson, my work has appeared in magazines ranging from Reader's Digest to The Futurist; and I publish online information hosted by Medium and Ning. I also create special reports and releases in the health insurance field.

Tired of bad news and media overload?
UPTIMES delivers less news ... all for the good!
