Do you have an old secret about the history of technology, a defunct cult, or a futuristic weapon that never made it off the drawing board? Would you like the world to know about it? Tell us.
News outlets usually love scoops that involve breaking news. It’s right there in the name: News. But here at Paleofuture we usually cover history. Because by understanding past visions for the future we hope to gain some insight into what tomorrow might look like. And there are thousands of people in the world with decades-old secrets who can help us do that.
Breaking history news may sound like a contradiction, but it’s our bread and butter. We publish the stories of 1960s cult communities, 1970s border surveillance, and 1980s artificial intelligence because every one of those plans was a unique vision for the future. And every one of them can provide context for the problems we face today.
