Aylmer's Protest & Predicting our Covid Infested Future: The November 12th, 2020 Age of Ingenuity

This week, Al traveled to Aylmer Ontario to cover the local Freedom March, held on November 7th. We’re going to talk about that and show some footage of the event.

We're also going to take a look at Toronto, Ontario based Trend Hunter, a company started in 2006 to track trends in pop-culture, advertising and design.

We’re going to pay particular attention to the scary suggestions the company predicts corporations should focus their marketing efforts around, after covid.

Sources cited during the episode include the following:
Page 5: Up-cycled root (cannabis or hemp root) for skincare products. Maximize that marijuana farm investment by making use of the parts of the plant you can't smoke.
Page 11: Appointment retail shopping. In-person shopping goes upscale with personalized assistance, coffee and croissants plus far, far higher costs. For the proletariat, there's always Amazon.  
Page 17, the Virtual Marketplace and Page 71, the Virtual Crowd – Anything once done in person and involving a crowd will now goe online. Concerts, parties, nightclubs etc. Far harder to hookup, but also far harder to become a super-spreader event. 

Page 29: Model Free Runways. Fewer people connecting equals fewer points of contact for disease transmission so models are expected to soon go the way of the dodo. No word on when the first coat hanger and/or manikin will make the cover of Vogue, Glamour or Cosmopolitan. 
Page 33: Face masks integrated into trendy, fashionable coats and outerwear. for the fashion conscious germophobe.  

Page 77: Skincare products designed to combat the acne which often develops because of mask wearing. Yum... 
Page 43: Solutions that address the absence of physical touch we’re all going to be feeling as long as the pandemic continues. 
Page 107: Protest Security. Solutions designed to hide your identity when protesting or just walking about. Works best when combined with the trend described on Page 103.
Page 103: New technologies for in-store (and outdoor) monitoring of others for when you want to know the identities of all those people protesting and walking about...
