Liminal.IT (Liminality)

"Science fiction is the anthropology of the future."
-Joan D. Vinge
Rites of passage consist of three stages. In the liminal phase an individual or group is in between or on the threshold of making a change, in a state of limbo, poised to transform into a new type of entity, having already left the old one behind. Humanity is in such a state today, with technology developing at a pace that outstrips society's ability to adopt it.

Liminal.it is the blog of RM Ambrose to discuss themes of technology (high to low) and society (from prehistoric to future), as well as Science Fiction and Fantasy
