The future industry has gotten really bland lately and nobody can come up with any ideas because global warming ate the future. To have a vision of the future where there is not a for certain global warming apocalypse is considered politically incorrect. Thus, nobody can write anything interesting about the future that is not an eco-doom disaster movie remake. Also, the whole Snowden/NSA thing made any dystopian surveillance fantasy passe. I think there was even a sci-fi author who gave up on a book about a dystopian surveillance state because it was already here.
The last sci-fi things I liked was Dark Matter, kind of felt highly Serenity influenced. Incorporated was ok, but too much eco-doom and hyper violence.
