Are you on the

Global Frequency?

As someone who advises CEOs and other corporate executives, heads of state, and countless technology, security, and intelligence professionals I'm often asked for recommendations on which articles and books to read. The requestors are looking to inform their worldview and make better decisions about the future. To identify data points that are contextual and important. This list is the weekly distillation of those data points.


"I've followed Matt for over 20 years and have seen first hand his knack for tracking the megatrends driving us forward to the future. His insights into the future of threats, technologies and opportunities are unparalleled and have made direct contributions to my most successful business endeavours." - Bob Gourley, Partner at Cognitio and Former DIA CTO


The list will identify the most important stories and perspectives of the week that should be in your decision loop as well as items from the fringe that exemplify an emerging trend or issue. What you do with this content is up to you.




The Global Frequency is a low volume mailing list (once per week) that highlights 5-7 news stories, books, or other items of interest hand curated by Matt Devost. Check out the Global Frequency Archives for past issues. The list is free to join and your privacy will be maintained.
