Is tomorrow yesterday’s future?

Interesting talk by sci fi author Ken MacLeod on possible futures: All Your Firewall Are Belong To Us.

Are we going to retreat from a neo-liberal semi-free-market into large-scale government projects. He makes it sound appealing but points out also it’ll go wrong (it always does).  Ken touches on a lot of strands in what’s going on in the world and shows how sci fi writers both get it right and get it wrong at the same time.
