You've seen lots of timelines of "future history" before — but they tend to be mostly drawing from the classics by people like Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke. But over at The Awl, Jane Hu has compiled a future timeline, which draws heavily on recent publications like Kim Stanley Robinson's 2312 and Paolo Bacigalupi's Wind-Up Girl, with some classics sprinkled in. The result is a very different, maybe somewhat quirkier, look at the future. [The Awl, via]
