I put up a short science fiction story on Medium about telepresence using augmented reality. You may wonder why.
1. Aaron Ross Powell put in a strong plug for Medium.
2. I remember when Robert Metcalfe once was asked what would be the Internet’s ultimate killer application. He replied, “telepresence.”
3. When I posted the other day about the shortfalls in technology relative to Ray Kurzweil’s predictions, it made me think of my own questionable prediction, Headsets, which I’m still longing for in a way. Think of this as an upated version of that essay. Sort of.
