Is Science Fiction About To Go Blind?

Abstract:
Awed at the pace of technological advances, a faction of geeky writers believes our world is about to change so radically that envisioning what comes next is nearly impossible.

The starship Field Circus is racing through space on a seven-year journey to a brown dwarf three light-years from Earth and, if all goes well, a business meeting with an alien civilization from another universe. Itís around the year 2030, and thereís time to kill, so three crew members, Boris, Pierre and Su Ang, are sitting in the bar, a wood-paneled room modeled after a 300-year-old pub in Amsterdam. Thereís a 16-page beer menu, but Boris has opted for a cocktail made of baby jellyfish.
