Timing is everything

Today, I did a lecture about how to predict the next big thing in technology. I mentioned technologies written about by sci-fi authors that is all coming true. An article just showed up on my news feed today about one of those authors and the exact tech that I mentioned, terraforming. In my opinion, Kim Stanley Robinson's book Red Mars is a blue print for the future. One of the reasons is reading great sci-fi with well thought out tech is that they have the room to explore the social or political implications or effects from new technology.

Here's the article, Kim Stanley Robinson on science fiction and California: "California is a terraformed space"
