We live in a hyper-technological era. We read sci fi. We know how it goes; How technology alters the very fabric of society. Shall we leave the news, the analysis, life, universe etc., to those puny muggles, who can't even recite the 3 laws of robotics, so they would never ask - will autonomous cars follow them, or merely protect their owner?Who can't look at Facebook's attempt on creating the first major non-governmental currency and identify exactly in what kind of SF we're living, and what are the possible endings? Stars no. We look at the world with the Sci Fi Eye. And we podcast about it.
