Gibson on futurists.

Yes, if there is an interview with one word from William Gibson, I will link to it here, so get fucking used to it. Today, he talks about his role and futurists.

The slot in culture that I’m most closely associated with is one in which charlatans declare that they know the future. My job is to sit near that slot and when people approach me I say: “Only charlatans say they really know the future.” I sit near the tent where they give out bullshit and offer people a different sort of dialogue. My role is to raise questions.
