      Thank you! This one was a lot of fun. The future has potential.

    Wait a second.. where are the zombies? Where are the mutants? TV in the 90’s has lied to us about the future 🙂

    Just kidding. It was interesting – although in some ways it’s only one potential view.. I think a sort-of liberal-minded advance of technology at no expense view. Or an updated ‘Star Trek’ optimistic view

    I think I still have faith in the folly of humans to make a dystopia future probably more likely. And I’m still not sure how we are going to overcome the impending major shortage of major elements (heavy metals to make our tech work, helium, etc) as well as the unstoppable climate impacts of humans. (ocean level rising will reshape where human settlements are)

    Just hit me – I could totally see this story fitting in with an Asimovian style theme 🙂 Something almost out of Robots of Dawn or Caves of Steel.

      I do secretly think that humanity isn’t the worst thing ever 🙂 I know it is very hip and cool right now to have deeply dystopian things, but no one has ever accused me of being hip or cool, so I feel good about writing an unhip story about how quickly we take for granted the extraordinary.
