OK, likewise engaging in horn-tooting, I recently published a paper in
'Ethics and Information Technology' entitled "Science fiction as a value
scenario for historical technology" (King, I. S. (2018). Science fiction as
a value scenario for historical technology. *Ethics and Information
Technology*, 1-5.), in which I discuss the use of science fiction to
enhance historical interpretation of values that influenced the creation
and adoption (or lack thereof) of technology.  Please don't hesitate to
contact me if you or your institution do not have a SpringerLink account,
and I welcome feedback.

David, I hope this is helpful to you.  -- Ian
