Heh. I just re-read my own subject line above, and it called to mind the title (and subtitle) Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies
It’s just calling out for extropian parody.
Computers, Nanotech, and Fusion: The Fate of Post-Human Society ?No matter whether you see envision the next century or two as a time of expansion beyond our limited solar system, or you’re a horrible writer, and see it as a depressing slog through cinders, garbage, and glowing rabbits, the title is ambiguous enough to work.
A Glenn Reynoldsian 'Heh' to TJIC.
