Phones that act as credit card systems. Robots that walk exactly like humans. High-quality books available for free, in quantities of millions, at the click of a single button. Smartphones that translate not only what people in other languages are saying, but the street signs as well. Cars that run on electricity, instead of running on fossil fuels that destroy the planet. Schools that actually prepare people for the real world. And people who’ve learnt to make a great living, and great income, doing what they want, when they want, how they want – and hurting no one in the process (in fact, quiet the opposite).
The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.
William Ford Gibson
