San Juan County resident Mark Anderson was the speaker at the Spring Street International School Discovery Series program Thursday (November 6). His talk was entitled "How I Called the Global Economic Collapse (and What Comes Next)"

To long time residents of San Juan County, Mark is best known as the co-founder of the Whale Museum. He is currently the Publisher of the Strategic News Service ; and a founder of the non-profit Project Inkwell.

Mark is a frequent guest and commentator on NPR's "All Things Considered," and has a number economics videos on the FiReTV channel on YouTube, also publishes a newsletter. In March of last year Mark appeared on CNBC Europe and predicted the global economic collapse; a successful call in a career based upon accurately predicting the future.

Starting in Friday Harbor, Mark turned a knowledge of technology into a series of companies that include a subscription based newsletter on the Net, the Future in Review Conferences, the SNS London and New York Dinners, and, locally, The Whale Museum and Orca Relief (he was the first to predict the 1996 and 2008 Orca population declines). His readers include Michael Dell, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Mark Hurd and Barry Diller.

Mark also runs SNS Project Inkwell, a consortium of teachers, administrators, students and companies spreading 1:1 computing (one device per student) to K12 schools around the globe, using technology to teach and learn, and to connect schools in the U.S. to schools in Mexico, Africa and China.

Mark is a member of the Merrill Lynch TechBrains Advisory Board, a contributing editor to The Industry Standard, and was selected by Fortune for its "100 Smartest People We Know" gathering.
