Daily Thoughts 01/13/2013
I have been reading more of The Visioneers. Right now, I am reading about Omni magazine which was a mix of science fiction and science. It had a definite utopian feeling with a vision that predicted all kinds of technological wonders. Ben Bova featured prominently in Omni, Ellen Datlow was one of the editors. I enjoyed reading it tremendously. It was the precursor to magazines like Wired and websites like Tech Crunch with their future oriented often excessive love of technology. The difference that I see is that the new magazines are completely focused on fringe technology and current technological breakthroughs not science fiction. People right now are living in a world where we make the future. There are of course some very interesting writers like Chris Anderson coming out of Wired.
