Hi πŸ‘‹ I’m Jay Springett

A writer, podcaster, and strategist

I have expertise in the design + management of techno-social systems, web3, and world building.

I am interested in creation of hybrid environments, governance & coordination mechanisms, permissive IPs, power fandoms, and the ‘worlds‘ the produce together.

All these interest combine in the emerging discipline of world running.

Since 2018 I have been the host of

Permanently Moved

A personal podcast, 301 seconds in length

Jay Springett podcast show cover

I’ve been involved with the speculative genre of Solarpunk since its early origins

My short story β€˜In The Storm, A Fire’ was long listed for the 2020 BSFA Award for Short Fiction. I have also been an admin since 2014.

I play bass guitar in a ‘slow & sad’ country band called Forest Bed

We have been described variously as ‘celtic cowboy’ music and making tunes for ‘the comedown after the hoedown’.

In a former life I was a concert grade flautist + piccolo player.

EP coming soon!

Jay Springett is a consultant strategist and writer. He works with individuals and organisations to create cohesive worlds. Hybrid environments that create a culture via the interaction of people, place, and technologies.

He has described Solarpunk as a memetic engine – a tool to power the β€˜refuturing’ of our collective imagination. His Solarpunk short story ‘In The Storm, A Fire’ was long listed for the BSFA Award for Short Fiction and Chanticleer International Book Awards Short Story Award Semifinalist.

In 2019 Jay Springett was selected as one of WeAreEurope’s 64 Faces of Europe. He is a Fellow of Royal Society of Arts. He co-founded the decentralised creative exchange and is a member of the Global Regeneration CoLab.
