Italian information visualization designer Giorgia Lupi created a fabulous “map of time” for Brain Pickings, showing future events as predicted by famous novels. It includes a breakdown of the forecasts in these works of fictions into a kind of STEEP framework: environmental, sociological, travel-adventure, technological, scientific and political. Besides being a beautiful and informative graphic (Edward Tufte would approve), it’s a good way to add too your science fiction/futurist reading list.
