OK, I’m an old guy. But way back before the beginning of time (you know, before competition reality TV), I was reading Heinlein and Asimov and Vonnegut. These old guys were writing about a future that we seem to be actually living today.
Not the future that includes universal health care or robot servants (yet), but a future that includes absolutely whacked out culture morons like we have today. This blog (digital blob) originally started is an attempt to provide an interface among the different shades of reality and entertainment to which we are exposed.
Another perhaps more interesting purpose is to explore the wonderful world of “Knowledge Networking” that I find myself in. Since this adventure started, I have connected with dozens of web citizens, bloggers, Web 2.0 virtuoso, Virtual World aficionados, and other fascinating individuals from all over the world (geographic and virtual).
Ride my seesaw: Please feel free to submit any examples or comment on any of the posts here. Thanks to my canine companion, Wayman Wynn, for helping me stay grounded, and reminding me to stop and eat. (That’s fascinating, Dad. Let’s eat!)
Ed. Note: The Green Hills of Earth was a story in the Future History Series by Robert A. Heinlein. It was a seminal Heinlein story, but not so chipper as some others. In short, my effort here is not so much to publicize the insanity that humans are heir to, but to provide entertaining and constructive alternatives.
Question: Does the term future history compute to now? Wayman says it’s absolutely superfluous, without the context of an active dreamlife, with interspersed philosophical events called meals. Can’t argue with that… let’s eat.
