to the 2070s
The 2070s begin
an era of peace and stability that are very welcome after the upheavals
of the last 70 years. Artificially intelligent machines, long smarter
than the average human, finally begin to take an interest in the
arts; the recently-reopened Peninsular City Arts Council accepts
its first artificially-intelligent board member. (Peninsular City
is the name of the city created when Somerville, Cambridge, Charlestown
and part of Medford combined in the 2050s.) The dead also become
involved in culture. The Armory hosts an art show involving the
projection of memories of recently deceased people.
