    I enjoyed this history of OMNI, one of the best popular science magazines ever. Could the brand be revived? http://t.co/OJ1jRio0tl

      I discovered OMNI just as my appetite for SF was growing up. It was a magnificent combo where I could get my SF, science fact, great interviews and and other things as well (those great puzzles and games). Great memories. Still regret dumping all those mags in one of my moves. But to answer your question as to whether it could be revived, I doubt it.

        I don’t think it can be revived in its old format. I was wondering more if the brand could be revived for some electronic publication or website to carry on a similar tradition. Sort of the way the Amazing Stories and Weird Tales names keep coming back. They are recognizable brands, but are much different than their original incarnations.

    Remember when we thought the year 2000 was the future? Looking back, you realize a lot has changed in only 13 years. http://t.co/HfSmNdza2R

    In this video, #scifi author Charles Stross explains why it’s easier to predict the near future than 30 years out. http://t.co/K1i1KJpmc1

    More evidence that we’re not good at predicting the future? Read the L.A. Times imagined future of 2013 made in 1988. http://t.co/GVvIGh86md
