Radio Open Source Peak Oil Thread, And Bruce Sterling

I got an e-mail a few days ago from Leslie Spoelstra at Radio Open Source about a call-in they were having on peak oil, and in particular was I interested in saying something about James Howard Kunstler, the millenialist John Brown of that particular theology? Nope, I offered; having had my say on the man, I don't think more is really warranted; I'm more interested in solving these problems than thinking about how we're all gonna die, thank you very much. Nonetheless, the resulting thread proved interesting, if only for Bruce Sterling's views on what he calls the Mad Max Scenario, complete with useful and amusing annotations. Enjoy.
