Univac: 2200

Story, first published: Frontiers 1: Tomorrow Alternatives (1973)

"Univac: 2200" ... depicts what Simak feels would be an ideal future life for humanity, two centuries hence. It includes computer-aided thinking: not writing per se, but a related concept. Like many authors' Utopian works, "Univac: 2200" is more an essay in story form, than any sort of narrative. But it is carefully thought through, and has some substance as an Utopian vision. It stresses ecological ideas, such as designing objects that will last and not become obsolete.
