Why should you read sci-fi?
Well, if you happen to be an inventor or someone who aspires to be an inventor, you might just find that the scientific flights of imagination common in good sci-fi writing will spur you to prototype ideas in your mind, consider new solutions to old problems, and foresee downsides to new inventions that might not have occurred to you otherwise.
And if you don’t believe me, maybe these MIT faculty (in this interview) will change your mind! 🙂
Hit the course syllabus for a great list of sci-fi stories you can dig into.
I write. I design. I cook. I read. I make music. I talk to people -- all kinds of people.
I used to teach and hopefully will do so again someday.
My dream job would be a cross between barrista and consultant, with a large helping of international travel and bohemian wandering through concerts, museums, galleries, and open spaces.
Somewhere back in time, my students started calling me "RameyLady" and the name stuck. I like it. There's a Ramey-man too. He's a much better writer but he seems to be too humble to share it with the world....at least, not yet.
