ar5 3l3etc.: finally a prediction

finally someone is leaning out the window and making a prediction about the world 25 years from today…

interviewer: will you make a prediction about the world 25 years from now?
bruce sterling: sure…
interviewer: oh good, because so far nobody on this panel has done so…
bruce sterling: […] ars electronica in 25 years will be this place – 25 years from now. not much else can be said about it. some of you will be here, some of you will have died. all of you will be 25 years older, i can guarantee you that… […] the future never arrives here. there will never be a point where we will sit here and say this is the future. the future has a future. dystopias and utopias are just tries to stop the passing of time… but time passes whether you think about it or not.
