No.87 Asides

The “they looked promising but I ran out of time and besides this thing is already long enough” section: My manifesto for a post-carbon future (Paul Mason), Was the Automotive Era a Terrible Mistake? (I’m going to go with yes), Networked Dream Worlds (5G at Real Life), and The Desire for Full Automation (I actually read a good chunk of this one and it’s interesting, but it’s a 20 min read and I felt I had to re-read to even begin to compress it, but have a look.) Oh, also Writing the Future With Utopias and Building Utopia in Space (on Fred Scharmen’s book).
