Interesting bite-sized futures

No rating

The ideas are more interesting than the prose, but then these are meant to be bite-sized provocations more than complete stories, so it's hard to complain on that front. Glad to see a mix of hopeful and dystopian futures, along with some that are a mix of both. Tech is rarely just one or the other, and these brief glimpses into possible futures are a great way of illustrating that mixed potential.
