Thoughts About Material for a New Book
I have been researching the future, say 100-150 years from now. Or at least what the so-called expert futurists are calling for (and many others). I will say it is an eye-opener and great fodder for a science fiction novel. A couple months ago I became fascinated by the term 'singularity'. That got me going, that is, looking into the increasing speed of technology change. That led me into nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, transhumanism, posthumanism, generational space ships, colonization, cognitive enhancement, and much more. So, that's where I'm headed for the next book...not all of the above, but certainly some.
