Apparently things are changing too fast for Mr. Gibson to write SF any more. WTF?
Sort of related: Frank Tipler bitches out Professor Death for living in the past when it comes to interstellar travel. Quoth Tipler:
Human will NEVER engage in interstellar travel. Only human downloads and artificial intelligences. Carrying full size human bodies, active or frozen, is too inefficient.
Fine, Frank, you stay here and send your starwisp to Alpha Centauri; the rest of us have a rendezvous with destiny out beyond the Hinder Stars. Guys like you used to say Goddard's rockets wouldn't work and Oppenheimer's bomb wouldn't go off, so I'm not too worried about your defeatist attitude on star travel.
