I decided to apply to become a “game master” for Superstruct, a multiplayer game designed to create forecasts – in other words, to predict the future.   I had a good time answering their essay question about the year 2019.  I found myself posing scenarios about the economic exploitation of the Gulf Coast as a local ‘Third World’ employment market, and about the implications of a new technological leap that should be possible but I don’t think anyone has contemplated:  What if people connect themselves to one another with bioenhancements -and then apply for recognition as new kind of entity?

Either might make the foundation for a decent short story.
