Bill, thanks for sharing the article. It was amusing and serious at the same time. Could it be that our predictions today could be as far off as most of them were 100+ years ago? Have we not any mechanisms at all to see the future? I'll be happy to go out on a limb to post some of my own funny and outrageous predictions (if not just to get the conversation rolling)!
2110 - Education is conducted on a global level for those who have access to the Internet. Children learn mathematics from professors in China, they learn Spanish from professors in Spain. The world is tri-lingual with translation devices for those who are not. There will be a huge disparity between the those who have and have not, larger than what we see today because the information available will be more than 1,000 fold. Wealthier members of the community will have children who attend internships with scholars and businesspeople from a young age. Philosophy will go back to being an occupation.
That's enough for starters. What are YOUR predictions?
