Utopia Rising
Jan. 2014 (vol. 47 no. 1)
pp. 87-89
Utopian science fiction prototypes might not actually be about the world that we want to live in, but rather the people we want to be. The Web extra at http://vimeo.com/81120151 is a video segment in which author Brian David Johnson joins Geek Speaks panelists Cory Doctorow and Henry Jenkins to discuss the roles that science fiction has played, for better or worse, in shaping the ways we think about innovation and confront the challenges of designing for the future.
