Quote of the Day: Bruce Sterling, in 1998

How will the digitalization and networking of information affect us and change people’s lives?

Bruce Sterling: You’d do better seeking out the very few aspects of people’s lives that will remain unchanged by this.

What should we watch out for in an information-rich, techo-Utopia?

Bruce Sterling: Surveillance, spies, Mafias, stock market and currency bubbles; stalking, scandalmongering and pervasive transnational economic corruption.

AP, April 1998

There’s a reason I’ve been reading Sterling since 1988. The man has a view of the reality of the future that often jibes with reality.
