I hope you’ll all excuse us a moment of self-congratulation – the Futurismic team have just discovered that we made made it into PC Magazine’s 100 Favorite Blogs list! Here’s what they had to say about us:

"This forward-thinking blog divides its focus among news and opinions on current cutting-edge science and technology, its impact on culture and people, and extrapolations on how all this will affect our future. Futurismic also features enjoyable "speculative fiction"—sci-fi stories. It’s a feast for those who love to think about the future in all its manifestations."

Well, we do try!

We’re alongside some real heavyweights in that list – sites like BoingBoing and Gawker – and to be included is a great vindication of all the work that goes into making Futurismic what it is. And so, on behalf of the whole team, I’d like to say thanks to the PC Magazine writers – we hope we continue to make the grade, and we’ll even forgive you for accusing us of publishing "sci-fi"! 😉

And to any new readers who’ve arrived here after reading that article, welcome! We hope you like what you find, and we hope you’ll stick around for more.

    Hey Carol, don’t take it to heart – the difference between science fiction, speculative fiction and sci-fi is a deep and tricky topic … and it’s probably the fact that we actually care enough to argue the point that makes people think we’re nerds. 😉

    Congrats! I’m glad others have noticed what I figured out a couple of years ago — there’s always some interesting tidbit on Futurismic, not to mention some good science fiction (not sci-fi).
