Bruce Sterling Is Wrong About Augmented Reality

TweetBruce Sterling is wrong about Augmented Reality. First off, I want to express that I have the utmost respect for Bruce Sterling as both a writer and a visionary.  As a longtime fan of cyberpunk and science fiction in general, Bruce has been a part of the pantheon of authors I regularly visit.  And as […]

Paranormal Game Review

Tweet “It’s better than Angry Birds,” said my nine-year old daughter. And who am I to argue about that, but given that Angry Birds has dominated our house for the last two months, I was just a little surprised.
