Scary. His prescience here is ominous: it means that tribbles are likely to be in our quadrotriticali in the future.

I liked that he mentioned Tulsa (my hometown). The only Ramada Inn I knew about is gone now and the nearest Japanese restaurant was about five miles away.

Sci-Fi writers make great prophets, I remember reading 's 1996 scriptwriting book that effectively predicted YouTube, Netflix, and Twitch.

Apple took away the headphone jack. In the next 10 years, every part of the cell phone will slowly become wireless and integrated into our surroundings and clothes. and privacy won't be as easy as turning off your phone. You'll have to hide in a cave.

If you were writing it now - what would you predict for the future as things stand today?
