About New World Same Humans

New World Same Humans is a newsletter on trends, technology and society, and a community that aims to supercharge you.

The newsletter is published twice a week:

  • On Sunday you’ll receive a long-form essay in text and podcast form.
  • On Wednesday you’ll receive New Week Same Humans, a shot of news and super-fast analysis.

As a subscriber, you'll also gain access to the NWSH Slack group.

There are channels to share news and ideas on the future of technology, society, health, power, and the planet. Plus further channels where you can highlight your projects, and post or discover opportunities.

We started out as a small tribe back in January 2020. Now, we've grown to encompass 20,000+ founders, insight professionals, strategists, designers, futurists, marketers, academics, policy makers and more.

NWSH is from writer and broadcaster David Mattin, an internationally recognised expert on trends, innovation and social change.

David has worked with a wide range of organisations to help them understand and respond to what lies ahead. His business, innovation and trends journalism has appeared everywhere from The Times, to Quartz, to Google Think Quarterly.

David sits on the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Consumption. He is co-author of Trend-Driven Innovation, published by Wiley.

What readers say

I find New World Same Humans to be essential reading every week. David’s anchor theme – how humans are affected by changes in the world, especially tech – is of central importance to our times and how we should think.

Mark Curtis - Co-Founder, Fjord. Head of Thought Leadership and Innovation, Accenture Interactive

My favourite weekend reading. Challenging and provocative, inviting us into a deeper conversation about issues at the heart of business and government. I always come away with ideas that I'm playing with for the rest of the week.

Anjali Puri - Global Director, Qualitative Offer and Expertise at Kantar

An excellent synthesis of today's most relevant signals and trends, always packaged with valuable context.

Noah Flower - Director of Strategy and Foresight, Salesforce

David Mattin is the best writer among all futurists and trendspotters globally. I've waded through countless newsletters and blogs across two decades looking for insights to share with my clients, so I know what I’m talking about. Combines a laser-focused trend radar with a classical English writing style. Irresistable, and professionally invaluable.

Magnus Lindkvist - Futurist, international speaker, author

Full of sharp analysis and creative forward-thinking. In contrast to other analysts, David Mattin manages to diagnose our post-digital society while maintaining an optimistic world view.
