The editorial this week is brought to you by Jason Porter, Senior Software Engineer
Today back in 1818 Mary Shelley published Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus! It is often considered to be the first science fiction novel. We may not have such exciting firsts this week, but the tech community has seen more announcements that would have been considered science fiction 10 years ago.
