+ - Ask Slashdot: What essays and short stories should be in a course on futurism? 4

Submitted by Ellen Spertus
Ellen Spertus (31819) writes "I'll be teaching an interdisciplinary college course on how technology is changing the world and how students can influence that change. In addition to teaching the students how to create apps, I'd like for us to read and discuss short stories and essays about how the future (next 40 years) might play out. For example, we'll read excerpts from David Brin's Transparent Society and Ray Kurzweil's The Singularity is Near. I'm also considering excerpts of Cory Doctorow's Homeland and Neil Stephenson's Diamond Age. What other suggestions do Slashdotters have?"
