Emergency as an incubator for change

The world will not be the same no matter how this pandemic will turn out. After the dust settles in we will be living in a different world. For some, the change might be bigger while others appear mostly unaffected. But the change is still there. 

Much of the change won't be anything radical. It will be something that would have happened anyway, just over s bit longer period of time. The  social distancing we are forced to go through could make a lot of things stick. Digital services can (further) replace social gatherings. Virtual presence might become more desired.

Welcome to the future

It's year 2020, the year of Cyberpunk (sure true players know the original edition was set on year 2013). During the last two decades a lot of old sci-fi settings have become past.

Sure, there are new sci-fi set into the near future written every decade. And it wasn't different in the past either. But for me personally, the last two decades were the ones when a lot of the sci-fi I used to consume during my youth finally came to pass. 

Planetary fever

"We need to save the planet!". It's a common statement heard often these days. But the truth is, the planet doesn't need to be saved by us. What it actually needs is being saved from us.

Earth is surprisingly resilient to change. It is us that might not survive those changes. Our planet has survived a lot worse, it just didn't turn out that well at the time for then dominant species. Where the current climate change is heading isn't even anything out of ordinary. We have just managed to accelerate it's coming from millions of years into mere decades.
