— William Gibson, Pattern Recognition
I’m wanting to go back into Pattern Recongnition before starting the rest of this series. I love this line because it is so applicable to so many conversations about technology.

But also, like, won’t most Americans be super obese by 2050? So they forgot to factor in that eventuality.
According to that episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine I watched today (yeah, I’m going to base my perception of the future on a fictional post-Roddenbery future timelime) the inequality in this country will be so bad by 2024 that there will be internment camps in the major cities where they store the poor and mentally ill, so apparently obesity won’t be a problem.
