Groudcar. Simple but it makes the point directly. We are primitive. Or at the end of our life cycle as a race. Depends if the glass is half empty or half full. LOL.

Awesome! I woke up early this Monday morning to watch the space shuttle launch and I checked your website to see if you had written about it. Amazing that the early idea's of a Space Shuttle can be traced to the 1950's! Without the idea's of Science Fiction Writers we wouldn't be where we are now.

-Just wanted to shout out to the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Good luck and Godspeed, have a safe journey and a smooth landing. :-)

Thank you! This is a perfect addition to the sci-fi unit I'll be starting to teach next week. It'll be fun for kiddos to click what they find interesting on the smartboard. This really helps with building relevance.

There is little to nothing in our textbooks about the genre anymore. TX is the state that dictates what text book companies will include and their school deciders do not seem to value it. I'm sure their citizens do, and the rest of the world, but until the Baby Jesus shows up in a mass forward hologram, I doubt they'll push for including sci-fi as relevant. But it's okay! We have found ways around that. Imagination rules.

Very good talk.

It didn't have any video, so I watched it with your frog "Interactive Toy" application on. It worked out pretty nicely, especially with the Chill Out song on the end.

Reminded me of "Home Movies" on Adult Swim. It was kinda cool.
