Normalizing the Future

Reading and watching lots of sci-fi stories; reading books by futurists like Amy Webb, Ray Kurzweil, Michio Kaku, Kevin Kelley, and others; reading books, blogs, and articles about emerging technologies; attending emerging technology conferences; tinkering with emerging technologies; and writing about emerging technologies have together acclimatized me to realities of the future. Daily space travel, super-intelligent AIs, nanobots, living thousands of years, ubiquitous virtual and augmented reality, and more all seem natural and normal to me now. In fact, sometimes it feels odd that we don’t have all these things yet. I imagine one day I’ll tell people “I remember the time before we had X technology.”
