Rationalist Fiction (Lightningtalk)

by Moritz Lenz (‎moritz‎) (

Rationalist Fiction aimed at Any and is held in English.

I want to tease a literary genre that might appeal to software developers: rationalist fiction.

In rationalist fiction, people tend to act a bit cleverer (and more believable) than in some other genres.

If superheroes exist, this has profound consequences on all of society, on the legal system and so on.

If Hermione from the Harry Potter book has access to a time turner, you can bet that criminals will do their utmost to get access to one as well, and law enforcement becomes a whole new level of crazy.
