Bruce Sterling On Forecasting The Future
from the changing-your-mindset dept
Here’s a (very) short interview with Bruce Sterling answering questions about his new book, Tomorrow Now: Envisioning the Next Fifty Years, which I’m about a quarter of the way through right now. He claims he wrote the book to help him get rid of old prejudices, which is often a great reason to do scenario planning. It gets people to broaden their world view and not get held back by things they thought they knew. The good quote though, is when the interviewer asks him if he thinks that his computer will always need more pampering than his cat. He says it will because, “nobody seems to be trying to give my cat viruses on purpose. Nor is my cat likely to inform on me to the new Total Information Awareness office.”
