William Gibson's Futuristic World Has Arrived

Author William Gibson talks to Scientific American about how "the future's arrived," and the many ways you can see the future around you.

Gibson says that the future can be seen today when a joint is replaced, or his home built in 1927 is being rewired.

"It's a very scalable observation. We can see it from orbit, as electric light versus its absence. We can see it in the differences in infrastructure in various neighborhoods of a city," Gibson says

An essay by Gibson is also included in this month's Scientific American about cities.
