Alvin Toffler warned us about Future Shock, but is this Future Fatigue? For the past decade or so, the only critics of science fiction I pay any attention to, all three of them, have been slyly declaring that the Future is over.

William Gibson, somehow managing to appear to be channelling Jim Dales, my History teacher from High School (who told us about Toffler in the first place) Ugh.

You know what sounds like fun?

This weekend it looks like the daily show is going to be adding images tagged with “sanityandorfear” on flickr to their official image stream.

I wonder what an enterprising prankster could do with that information?

Daily Show on Facebook:

“What fun is going to a once-in-a-lifetime event if you can’t show up your friends by posting pictures of the good time you had on the Internet? Upload your Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear photos to Flickr, then use tag "sanityandorfear” to add them to the official photostream for all to see.“
