3...2...1... Launch!



Welcome to Future/Culture Magazine, which is actually more of a blog, but sounds cooler.  As you can see from the mission statement in the description above, this site is all about the changes in modern society brought on by the rise of the information age.  We will be examining...well... the culture of the future before it arrives.  It is not too difficult.  We look at history, trends, science, socioeconomic and political changes, philosophy, art, music, entertainment, technology, and the people who will be leading us into the next phase of our digital lifestyle.

In the coming weeks, we will be profiling and interviewing Kira Marie Nightingale (aka Crystal Violet), futurist, musician and founder of Radical Science News.  We will also review books by Zoltan Istvan, Ramez Naam, Rachel Haywire, Dr. Aubrey de Gray and Dr. Ray Kurzweil.  There will be a retrospective of the canceled-too-soon television series Caprica and we will delve into the futurist views seen in the films Interstellar, Limitless and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

We welcome your submissions.  Just email them to our Editor-In-Chief, Travis James Leland (aka TJL-2080) at tleland1980(at)gmail(dot)com and put Future/Culture Submission in the header.

We in the Future/Culture Magazine offices are excited to see where this goes.  We hope you stick with us as we head into the future.
