Ten years ago, David Beaver, Alex Howerton, and I announced the establishment of the Overview Institute at the International Space Development Conference in Washington, DC.
Our goal was to create an organization that would be responsible for conducting research on the Overview Effect, sharing our findings with the world, and advocating for its importance in addressing critical world problems.
We had 22 founding members at the time, all of them outstanding leaders in their respective fields.
I think we have made some good progress in achieving our mission, but there is much more to do.
For example, we have recently seen the establishment of the Overview Institute of Australia and the Overview European Forum.
In subsequent blogs, I am going to try to do a systematic review of our accomplishments over the past 10 years and also look ahead to the next 10.
