Absolute Sterling Shatner Jackson

Bruce Sterling interview (with Cory Doctorow, Paul Di Filippo, Richard Nash, Ted Striphas, Matthew Battles, Marianne de Pierres, Giuseppe Granieri, John Sundman, Nils Gilman, Giuliana Guazzaroni):
Ted Striphas: Beyond the fact that neologisms can make for lively writing, why push the limits of language this way? 
Bruce Sterling: I know that can sound like "pushing" language, but from my point of view, social change reveals gaps in language.

 Sterling references this article from Atlantic Monthly (wiki):  "As We May Think" by Vannevar Bush

Seth Abramson stands up for Peter Jackson and The Hobbit, backing up his thoughts from the "canon," so to speak.
