New here
I am an avid amateur futurist who just discovered this site and how awesome it is. Seriously, the sheer amount and overall quality of the stuff here is astonishing. I am struck, however, by how much a lot of this mirrors the science fiction of Iain M. Banks. I don't know if anyones brought this up before, but many of the terms and ideas here have direct counter-parts in The Culture universe, although they have different starting points. Is anyone else here a fan of Bank's work (surely there must be many) and did anyone use it as inspiration, or did it just work out that your ideas of futuristic societies happened to be similar?
