itwbennett writes "Neal Stephenson is shouldering some of the blame for discouraging budding scientists and engineers, saying in a Technology Review interview that perhaps the dark turn science fiction has taken is 'discouraging budding scientists and engineers.' For his part, Stephenson has vowed to be more optimistic. Somewhat relatedly, Alexis Madrigal in The Atlantic says, it's time for startups to move beyond Facebook and invent something new already."
