Title: The Future of the Future

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Grant Watson


Science fiction used to be easy. In the 21st century, surrounded by computers, with satellites massed in orbit around the Earth, medical advances leaping forward, robotic probes on Mars, and technological breakthroughs being announced every week, what is the point of science fiction any more?

Is there a need for fiction about the future if we're already living there? What directions will science fiction head in in the coming decade? What is the future of looking into the future?
