Following on from yesterday's post, Ron Moore says all sorts of things about season 2:
"You're going to see things that happened in real life, but happen faster and in slightly different ways," Moore promised. "So things like the coming of the personal computer, internet, variations on communications and email and cell phones and all that. You'll see it in a more rapid advance. And the actual models and prototypes and pieces of technology that are being used are not exactly what happened in real history… you'll see variations on it. We went back and looked at some of the early prototyping and different branches that some of the technology could have gone off in the '70s and '80s, and chose to go down some of those paths. So, you'll have a different spin and a different feel to it. The further the show goes now, the more science-fiction it's going to become. We're getting more aggressively into areas that never happened."
Sounds promising. 1

- I'm slightly disappointed that they're sticking to Reagan ending up in the White House and being up for even more of an arms race than he was in our timeline, but I can't deny that all the signs are that in the timeline they're showing us politics hasn't changed all that much so that's not a completely unexpected turn of events. ↩
