Matt Jones On Cities, Future And Science Fiction

io9 atones in part for its tendency to post about babes and dodgy films by publishing an article by Matt Jones entitled The City Is A Battlesuit For Surviving The Future. The article discusses cities of the future and cities in Science Fiction, referencing Bladerunner, The Matrix, Mega City One and Warren Ellis.

It's a good read, and that's the best title for an article I've read all year.

Matt Jones now works at Berg, who do very interesting stuff, but I first read stuff by him during the whole Warchalking thing.


Grammar quibbles.

"io9 atones in part for it’s tendency to post"

"it's" is the contraction of it is. "its" (no apostrophe) is the possessive case of the noun it.

I know, I know - picky picky. But, you're a writer and commentator.
