Half the tech/design blogs in my blogroll ran this post and I don’t really know who to via this for, really. This very flickr set features some 18 pics by “visual futurist” Syd Mead, the guy who did all the design work for Blade Runner and Tron. If this is not enough for you, CGSociety has just had a brief resum√© on Mead so check that out as well while you’re at it.

I see the future as a contest between human intelligence being degraded by dogma, and human intelligence being allowed to invent itself to solutions and to its own credit.
