Don't you find that more and more? (i.e. reality mimicking movie/book plots?)

On the other hand, I did a stint last year of reading sci fi from the 1950s. There is an obsession with post-nuclear-holocaust world and an assumption that WWIII would happen in the 1980s or 1990s. And they completely and utterly miss the importance of the computer.

Yeah, go back and watch Enemy Of The State  ...doesn't seem like much of a stretch now, does it?
