Bruce Sterling's last Wired Column
Bruce Sterling, who wrote the cover story for Wired 1.01, has published his last column. In Wired 14.12 he writes,
. . . futurism itself has no future. Once confined to an elite group, the tools and techniques of prognostication are all widely available. As for pundits: The world used to be full of workaday journalists, with just a thin sprinkling of opinion mongers. Now a TypePad account is a license to deliver nose-to-the-pavement perspective with an attitude.Well, yeah, but Bruce had better perspective -- and more attitude. Without him Conde will be a wee bit Nastier.
