US government asks SF writers how to defeat terrorism
From USA Today:
"Looking to prevent the next terrorist attack, the Homeland Security Department is tapping into the wild imaginations of a group of self-described "deviant" thinkers: science-fiction writers."
The writers include
"Bear says the writers offer powerful imaginations that can conjure up not only possible methods of attack, but also ideas about how governments and individuals will respond and what kinds of high-tech tools could prevent attacks."
Nice to see them focusing on sensble Foreign policy then. Hearts and minds?
