Design Fiction - Signs from the near future

Hey, hey, hey… Look at that. Designer Fernando Barbella used our HYPERMORGEN Icons (please spread the word) and produced some cool signs to illustrate a near dystopian future. Well done Mister. More of that please.

Love this.

News organizations say FAA ban on drones flies against free press

Over a dozen top news and media organizations have come out in opposition to the Federal Aviation Administration’s commercial drone ban, contesting that its broad restrictions violate First Amendment protections afforded to journalists. Though the ban was overturned by a National Transportation Safety Board judge in March, the FAA is currently appealing it. These news organizations — including the Associated Press, The New York Times Company, and the National Press Photographers Association — have filed a brief with the NTSB asking that it affirm the judge’s ruling and continue to block similar bans until the FAA makes an exception for the use of small drones.

While I support this, I don’t support the press and no one else being allowed to do this.

In 1975, Newsweek Warned that Science Fiction Was Taking Over

 In December 1975, Newsweek’s book critic Peter S. Prescott began a feature on the science fiction literature and film that was taking up an ever-greater place in American culture by sounding a note of alarm. Samuel R. Delany’s Dhalgren had been published in January of that year, Ursula K. LeGuin’s The Dispossessed had been published the year before, while Slaughterhouse Five and Cat’s Cradle were establishing Kurt Vonnegut as a major literary figure. Prescott was horrified.
“Suddenly, they’re all around us. Too late now to think of repelling them, or even of self-defense. They’ve conquered the nursery and have sunk tentacles into the colleges. Disguised as pimply kids and pallid biochemists, they look like us , and are multiplying, communicating with one another in frequencies the rest of us don’t hear. They have a message for us, too: We’re taking over. Pay attention. Be respectful.”

Resistance is futile!
