Gibson turns lukewarm on the future

12:06 p.m. / Posted by cogspace /

In an interview carried by Silicon, William Gibson (of Neuromancer fame) seems to be lukewarm on the 'future'. He believes that since WWII technological development has been growing at an exponential rate and that he can't see where the future is heading in this crazy maelstrom of change.

I don't blame Gibson. The future he and others envisioned is HERE already and being sculpted at this moment.
Today IS the future. It's hard to see the forest when youre in the middle of it.
The genre of science fiction has found ANOTHER home...the web.!

However, I hope Gibson keeps pushing his imagination and keep publishing!
