Influencing the future?

I’m busy thinking about and planning my talk at the Goethe-Institut Indonesien’s Digital Discourses Science/Fiction conference. As always I find it interesting to stop and consider the what and why of this aspect of my work.

The conference is looking at how future-shaping technologies are changing the way we live, work, and eat. And, I’m talking about whether science fiction can influence / affect / predict the future and my experiences of writing near-future fiction to raise ethical issues in public engagement events with scientists and technologists.

If you want to know a bit more feel free to join me for some pre-event Q&A on twitter (5pm Jakarta time on Monday 24 October).

I’ll be speaking at the conference on Friday 28 October (1pm UK / 7pm Jakarta)]
