Mentally, I’m out in the Second Belt (aka Kuiper Belt) at the helm of a Kataraa Skiff. It’s an old model, a prototype printed on Saloa. It has a hundred years of service and plenty of customization, hacks, and fixes…
The Neural Lace is one of those science-fiction tropes I always felt would announce the onset of the singularity—with augmented reality, flying cars, artificial consciousness, faster than light travel, and uploading.
When I decided on the technology for Spex in my books, I wanted to go with brain-scanning, but was worried I might have been too optimistic with the rate of technological change… perhaps, as it turns out, not! 😉
Exciting! Let’s see what Friday brings!
