Shaping the future by Charles Stross

Science fiction writer Charles Stross tries to imagine the future in this piece originally given as a speech in 2007.

There’s nothing here specifically about virtual worlds, but his thoughts about the future of computing might come as a surprise. It’s not computers that the future belongs to, but bandwidth.

” It’s like the difference between having an experimental test plane that can fly at 1000 km/h, and having thousands of Boeings and Airbuses that can fly at 1000 km/h”

Interesting and thought provoking stuff……
