The Future of Interactive Glass (by @baekdal) #trends

This morning, I came across one from Corning...and it is spectacular! Corning is a glass manufacturer, probably best known for it's Gorilla Glass that Apple uses to make their iPhones and iPads ultra tough. But as you can see in the video, Corning wants to do much more than make Gorilla glass (see video below). One thing I particularly like is that, unlike most other future vision, Corning seems to 'get it'. Most other brands seem to have this idea that we will have separate computers in every room. But just imagine the nightmare of having to manage all those separate computers. It is the old time thinking, back from the days where computers weren't connected in a mobile form factor. Finally! Note: I wrote more about this in: Debunking The New York Times Interactive Mirror. So, enjoy your day with these inspiring videos. 2011: A Day Made of Glass.

Dr. Richard Nass interviews Dr. Dr. How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later. First, before I begin to bore you with the usual sort of things science fiction writers say in speeches, let me bring you official greetings from Disneyland.

How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later

I consider myself a spokesperson for Disneyland because I live just a few miles from it — and, as if that were not enough, I once had the honour of being interviewed there by Paris TV. For several weeks after the interview, I was really ill and confined to bed. I think it was the whirling teacups that did it. Elizabeth Antebi, who was the producer of the film, wanted to have me whirling around in one of the giant teacups while discussing the rise of fascism with Norman Spinrad... an old friend of mine who writes excellent science fiction. We also discussed Watergate, but we did that on the deck of Captain Hook’s pirate ship. Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything.

It reminds me of a headline that appeared in a California newspaper just before I flew here. So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Sci-Fi Lists - Top 100 Sci-Fi Books.
