Design Fiction, an Interactions Magazine cover story by Bruce Sterling
As a contributing editor for Interactions Magazine, Experientia partner Mark Vanderbeeken was tasked with finding clever people to write a story for the magazine. His first choice was Bruce Sterling. Bruce accepted and wrote a wonderful contribution — much appreciated by the editors — that was chosen as the magazine’s cover story.
“We have entered an unimagined culture. In this world of search engines and cross-links, of keywords and networks, the solid smokestacks of yesterdayâ€™s disciplines have blown out. Instead of being armored in technique, or sheltered within subculture, design and science fiction have become like two silk balloons, two frail, polymorphic pockets of hot air, floating in a generally tainted cultural atmosphere.”
Thank you Bruce.
