Welcome to 2050 - what the real 2050 could be like. This book is about what life will be like when "cyber" is prolific, self-aware, and in full control of large-scale industry, service, and transportation. There will be fascinating changes in how humans live and what they think about.

The goal of this book is to get history working for you. I mean this in both senses of the word work: working, as in, you can understand it better; and working, as in, that understanding will bring you benefits - you can exploit your understanding to take advantage of upcoming opportunities, and to sleep better at night because the world you live in is a more understandable and predictable place.

This book is a collection of short stories. In each of these I wrap an interesting story around a science concept. Because I am as concerned about good internal consistency as I am good story telling, these are stories that are fun because they take different twists from those found in conventional speculative fiction. These stories are different.
