No Time Like The Present By Paul B Rainey
The emergence of the ultranet has meant that people can look up and download stuff from the future. Some do, some don’t. And here, in Milton Keynes, a group of geeks are caught in that dilemma, while dealing with everything else that is going on in their lives.
Just information, and now people travel from the far future, obsessed with a time when people just couldn’t do that sort of thing. But most things don’t change. Not in the provincial town of Milton Keynes. No more than they would have done otherwise. Oh sure, professional sport has gone away, along with the gambling industry, but most people try and keep doing what they always were doing, waiting for the future to catch up with them the slow way.
