TCLP 2012-07-17 Predictions from the 80s

This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

Apologies, again, for the delay. Hopefully the reasons for my late return home last night will be discussed on a future episode of my other podcast, the Living Proof brew cast.

There is no new hacker word of the week this week.

The feature this week is a discussion of two books from the 1980s that both made some interesting predictions, some of which held up, others which did not, and the value the resides in them regardless of their accuracy. The first is “Islands in the Net” by Bruce Sterling, the other “Cyberbooks“, by Ben Bova.
