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

” 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……
