    I’m looking for a blog that discusses future science or tech to help me generate ideas for my stories. I watch Isaac Arthur and John Michael Godier but I want something I can read.

    https://futurism.com/ not a blog but I remember getting sucked into some articles here once. See if something catches your eye?

    Bad Astronomy is fun, and I've heard the author is legit (though I haven't researched him myself).

    If you can stand it, /r/futurology on Reddit is usually full of such things.

    There’s a good podcast called science and futurism with Isaac Arthur. It’s on YouTube and most podcasts services and sounds like what you want. Futuristic technologies from near to far distant and their implications on society.

    I highly recommend John Danaher's Philosophical Disquisitions, which covers the moral and legal issues surrounding future technology like AI, big data, algorithmic governance etc. In my opinion, a good sci-fi story would have to cover the political and legal consequences of new technology, and this is a useful primer.

    I'd steer clear of that tbh, it's gotten even worse recently where they 1/3 posts are politics related things or fluff-feel good posts and the mods don't take them down.
