#THE RULES YOU FOLLOW THEM

  1. Reference John Brunner’s prescient classic The Shockwave Rider in a thread
  2. This can by by link, image, text, or combination of all three
  3. The reference must be on-topic.
  4. Weird bonus points for also referencing the Tofflers’ Future Shock

Hmm…I think Toffler’s is Future Shock, as shown in your images. (Written with his wife and uncredited co-author, Heidi Toffler.)

The Shock of the New would be the book and TV series by Robert Hughes, about Modern Art, no?

[Do I get any weird bonus points for this post? I am on topic for this thread, aren’t I?]

Bonus points for finding my error.

YOU ALONE get extra bonus points for on-topic references to Rbt. Hughes’ The Shock of the New.
