At the beginning of every year, decade, century or millennium people feel the need to make predictions for the future. Things that will happen over the next months and years. Often a year later you look back and laugh. Predicting the future is hard, if it were easy I would have won the lottery many times over.
So instead of making some prediction for what is going to happen over the next 12 months I am going to do the opposite. I am going to list 10 things any one of which happening will mean we have reached the future. Each of these things would cause a significant upturn in our world view and would disrupt all life as we know it.
When I started thinking of this post I was going to do it all in one post, but there are two problems:
- I haven't thought of 10 yet.
- Each one I think of I want to write too much on, so the blog post would be huge.
