Details

At the last meetup, someone remarked on how all of the 'Futurist' movies seem to be dystopian. Of course, movies and stories generally require some sort of conflict and resolution, and it's not clear how these would occur in a Utopic environment.

So lets talk about Utopia, and how it would be constructed, and what kind of stories (use cases) could take place in it. Bring your favorite apropos novels, essays, ideas and treatments. If you'd like to suggest some reading, put it in the comments.

My Suggestion - 'Dancers at the End of Time' by Michael Moorcock. http://www.amazon.com/The-Dancers-Time-S-F-Masterworks/dp/0575074760/ .
