along with science fiction luminaries like David Brin, Neal Asher, Julie E. Czerneda, Charles Stross and other writers, researchers and bloggers, I’m part of SFSignal’s most recent Mind Meld about Optimistic Scenarios for Our Future World. In no universe did I ever imagine I’d be in the same post as any of these amazing people.
the question we were asked was:
Q: It’s not unusual to hear negative things about what the future might bring for the Earth and humankind, and dystopian narrative certainly makes for entertaining futuristic sci-fi scenarios (environmental disaster, overuse of technology, etc). In the spirit of optimism and hope, what are a few of your far future scenarios that speak to the possible positive aspects of our evolving relationship with our world?
I especially liked the responses from Guy Haley, Charlie Stross, and Sharon Lynn Fisher. Everyone’s responses were wonderful, but those seemed to speak directly to me.
Go take a read, and then let me know in the comments here – what are YOUR optimistic scenarios for our future existence?
