The Future History of the Internet
Berlin, December 10, 2015 — Creative lab hyperraum published The Future Chronicles, a journalistic journey through time. The first edition travels through the history of the internet — from the past into the future.
In times of information overload, The Future Chronicles is intended to help its readers to maintain the overview. Every issue deals with a current topic of social change. Each article covers a milestone in history and takes place in the respective time.
The first issue deals with the internet: In twenty articles, from the sixties to the end of 21st century, readers will be able to experience the transformation from a technophobic to a virtual society.
The Future Chronicles is available as print version and ebook on the publishers’ website.
An interactive app version for Apple’s iPad and Android tablets will follow in a few days.
In June, the project had collected more than $ 40k on Kickstarter and is thus the most successful publishing project from Germany. "We are very happy that so many people have supported the project and made it possible to us to bring our vision to life", says Daniel Kiendl, co-publisher of The Future Chronicles.
"Time to proceed", the publishers call on their readers in the editorial. "As founders of hyperraum we think about the future so we are able to shape it. Equipped with the knowledge of what is going to happen you can now do the same."
