Ever since Bill Joy published his essay on how bleak the future was going to be it has become chic to write sensationalist garbage in all sorts of publications and try to pass it off as futurist prediction. As of now I am boycotting any magazine who publishes that “the future is happening TO us and we will have no choice but to go along” crap. Humans are now, and have always been, a creative creature. The future can not be found by using a linear progression from the present. That said, I did quite enjoy the other parts of Discover Magazine’s “20 years” section. For now you have to buy the magazine, but next month it should be online.
