Predictive Fiction

What is "Predictive Fiction"? It's the realization that we (professionals, public, policy makers, etc.) need to try to get a better handle on where technological change is going, and how to anticipate some of the impact of the various trajectories. A tool for doing this is a fairly constrained form of Science Fiction that speaker Jim Isaak calls "predictive" fiction. 

Isaak uses stories that are built on our current understanding of science/technology and project a modest distance into the future to explore how these things may affect society.
