The Future

Looks like I'll be finished the next play before Labor Day. Hence a recent e-mail. I can do it. I know I can.

I have a "final"-ish draft due today, er, yesterday.

I sat at a table reading and watched Kyle and the actors slowly work their ways through the eccentricities of the play. They were able to make observations that were absolutely supported by the text, made perfect crystal sense, were utterly motivated, and that I was completely surprised by. That's why this sort of thing is an art, and not a science.

I've become obsessed with The Hanso Foundation. It's like tailor made for geeks like me.

Question for all of you that love the future: What will it be like?
