Imagining the technological future


There’s another nice piece of writing on culture in Berfrois. This piece, by Kevin Kelly, is a work of futurism that attempts to imagine the increasingly technologized future.

This is the sort of work that is at the cusp of science-fiction, design futurism and social science. Of course, one of the visions is of an environment and objects that think for us. Here is a further piece that discusses the way that we imagine the coming powers of technologies that ‘think’.
