About Brian Williams

By logging, mapping and comparing the rate and direction of change, Brian has been able to develop his own unique methodologies for predicting human advancement.

As a child, Brian became fascinated with the rate of change of our civilization. At that time, people were making some wild claims on the invention of certain items such as flying cars, and space exploration. Even at the young age of 8, Brian was skeptical due to his observation of changes in technology following the industrial revolution of 1900. Although interested in history, Brian realized that humans spend too much time on the past, and should think about the future. From his youth, Brians interests centered around technology, learning how to program in Fortran, and build electronic devices. He attended Cal Poly Pomona, and became an Industrial Engineer, and adopted the pursuit of becoming a Futurist.

After college, Brian went to work in the Aerospace Industry in engineering, working with engineers and source inspectors from the DOD and NASA on the B1B, and the Space Shuttle, among many aircraft/aerospace projects.

For 20 years Brian was president of his own software company, Computer eCommerce, and completed over 700 software projects for 300+ clients. With Brian working in the role of System Architect and New Media Producer, his team of programmers, DBAs, designers and authors created apps, enterprise systems, and business software.

Brians current interests focus on a new company called One Item, Inc. In March 2018, brian was named Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of One Item.

He is now working on several books, and the next one is titled “Mankind’s Next Thousand Years”.
