Let’s All Live Together

I love me some predictions for the future, especially ones like these predictions about future microbe science.  While clearly not yet supported by any hard science, predictions like these seem to be such logical extrapolations of what we know now, that I’ll have a hard time not thinking of these as established facts already. One […]

Will Your Children Get Mind-Controlled Mechas For Christmas?

In light of some recent developments – artificial limbs that the user can ‘feel,’ and motherf***ing RATS LINKING TO EACH OTHER’S BRAINS  – I thought I’d repost this rhapsody on our human-robot future, that I originally wrote for These Gentlemen in 2009. Will Your Future Children Get Giant Mechas For Christmas? (That They Control With […]

Quantum Story Computer Human Brain

Friday is sometimes unstructured “like what if, man? what if ?” quasi-stoned post day here at the babelwright blog! Just a random reaction to this article about the future of quantum computing.  The article asserts that someday soon, quantum computing may allow for a computer more powerful than the universe.  (Read the article for an explanation of that.)  Such […]

What is a Line (A Short Play)

31 Plays in 31 Days #15 I hope this is more interesting than offensive. The potential trouble – and potential joy – of this 31 Days, writing-a-play-in-one-sitting-every-day thing is that sometimes where the starting concept ends up is not where you necessarily foresaw. Enjoy? (The year 2045.) (A kitchen, represented by a counter with a […]

A Transitional Decade

I was thinking about what my friend Sam over at Morpheme Addict said in this post.  It lead me to some not-totally-coherent thoughts, which maybe someone will be gracious enough to query in the comments? Anyways, Sam expresses a feeling of frustration and disconnect with the Facebook-and-blogging world which I think we’ve all known.  I […]
