Back from the future

by Ken Porter

In the year 2014, The New York Times has gone offline. The fourth Estate's fortunes waned. What happened to the news? And what is EPIC?



Well today thats still fiction, one that sends chills down my spine...

- OTOH when I look at today's situation is it really that much different?
- Does it matter whether a computer or some human jounalist drone in a basement restructures some news networks story?
Even today a lot of the content in my local newspapers comes from the same sources.
- What is the metric for measuring a storys approximation to the "truth"?

The scenario reminds me of the final story in Isaac Asimov's "I Robot".

Time will tell...
