Bruce Sterling's State of the World

One nice thing about the first week of January: Bruce Sterling (@bruces) is back at it for his annual rant about the the State of the World public interview in The WELL's inkwell conference.

First question put to him was from Cory Doctorow who asks him to help him plan for the future now that he has a kid. Bruce fires back with a hilarious, biting, and brilliant reply that is simply a must-read.

Bruce may be full of it some of the time, but he's less full of it than most, and for that I value his insights like I would value gold.

Highly recommended reading. That, and see the movie COLLAPSE and you should be all set for the 2010's.

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
