Science fiction writers often miss out on the credit they re due for correctly predicting the future just because they got one niggling little detail wrong No fan of hard SF should have been surprised by WikiLeaks it was obvious that sooner or later technology was going to make it impossible to keep secrets The only uestion was the nature of the technology usedWell TL Sherred probably got there first with his classic 1947 short E For Effort and then there was Isaac Asimov in 1956 with The Dead Past In both of these stories people invent a gizmo time viewer or chronoscope depending on the version which allows you to view arbitrary scenes from the past Of course the past starts just a microsecond ago so you can also see the present and spy on everyone Both Sherred and Asimov see the government as grabbing the invention and using it for their nefarious ends Then in this 1972 novel Shaw comes up with a new method The hero accidentally invents a form of glass which slows down light to a crawl Light going in emerges days months or even years later People uickly think up clever applications You can have street lights that don t need any power just releasing at night the light that came in during the daytime An industry springs up for slow glass picture windows You put the sheet of glass in a scenic location let it soak up several years of pretty views and then sell it to city folks who are tired of looking at the parking lot Eventually people realise that slow glass is the ultimate camera no moving parts at all so it can be microminiaturized and mass produced at low cost Yet another nefarious government sprays slow glass dust everywhere so everyone is under constant surveillance wherever they are Though bizarrely I think this turns out to be a Good Thing because it lets the hero leave his nasty wife and take up instead with his hot secretary Well it was the early 70sAnyway for whatever reason hardly anyone predicted the rise of the personal computer and the Internet so they missed the obvious solution No need to bend the laws of physics Just make computers so cheap and easy to operate that everyone uses them to store all their sensitive information then link them together in a fast network that allows a disgruntled employee to send a thousand pages worth of dirt around the world in a couple of seconds Amazing we didn t think of that But honestly does it matter I think Sherred Asimov and Shaw essentially figured it out before the rest of us even realised there might be a problem A for alertness And how come not one journalist this week has
