These days, it might seem to one that technological revolutions come nearly on a weekly basis. Innovative startups promise to disrupt nearly every industry in existence, so the disruption in question becomes akin to killing d’Artagnan on a duel: they’ll have to get in line. Elon Musk, a person who is just one childhood trauma away from becoming a supervillain, launches his car into space and promises to land people on Mars in the very next decade. Finally, there are transhumanists who believe that the technological singularity is nigh, and meanwhile prepare themselves to the life in a cyberpunk dystopia.
