flow my tears thru a scanner darkly…
Minority Report could be de-fictionalising sooner than we think.
Worse, we could be heading towards a Phillip K. Dicktatorship….
I’ve been fossicking away up in the north 40 of the Silverfish Ranch, and have found some gems I’ll send thru to AudioCulture soon – but I thought Russell might have fond memories of this first image;
