Technovelgy Has 2,000 SF Inventions, Ideas and Technologies

I just realized that my database of technovelgy - science-fictional ideas, inventions and technology - now has two thousand entries! Each technovelgy item has a text quote (or, in the case of movies, a picture), the citation of the book and its author and a descriptive article. Each page also has additional links to the following:

  • A brief description of the book or story, with links to other technovelgy from the same story
  • A brief biography of the author, with links to technology from the same author
  • Direct links to more technovelgy and news stories from the author and the cited work.
For the uninitiated, Technovelgy.com provides this information in a variety of useful formats:
