Bruce Sterling: Design fictions and the judgement of history | NEXT Berlin
"Design fictions destabilise things. Why do you never have design fictions about stability? Well, start-ups are full of people working hard to make other people rich – baby boomer financiers mainly. That will be the judgement of history: an alliance between hacker space culture and off-shore, tax-avoiding elites. That’s your actual dragon, the big one. You know it’s a dragon, because you’re part of it; you’re its brain and nervous system. As long as you’re making rich guys richer, you’re part of the problem."
