In the future, Science Fiction will be created from modules, like software.

Standard libraries of modules will provide provide capsule ideas for technology, environment, characters, etc.

In the more distant future, writers will develop a Sci-Fi Generalized Description Language (SFGDL) to describes how the above modules can be linked to create a story, drawing/comic, poem, or other media. This would allow for science-fiction to be single-sourced and output into any desired medium.
