Weirdness in a Curly Package
It began in 1997, as an experimental novel inspired by a fleeting meeting with Steve Jobs at the IMPRINTA trade show in Dusseldorf. Jobs had just wrested control of Apple Inc back and he had a mad glint in his eye that I knew would lead to something.
A lifetime later and I'm teaching screenwriting in Liverpool, UK, making films and writing PodPlays. The Future is a Fucker is a 23 year old book that was dusted off and edited while I was looking after my wife as she went through chemotherapy. It was a rare moment of reflection, and what I saw was the splintering of the world that I predicted then coming true in the 21C. It has just come back to life and the mania of media is brasher than before; the vanity of the masses becomes our undoing.
