Hey guys I wasn't sure if this was thread worthy but I almost comedically spat out my morning glass of OJ when we were cited as experts by the Daily Mail! They're not the most respected newspaper but its always a little exciting when a forum you post on is mentioned in a big newspaper. 

 

The article itself is about life in 2083 and mainly covers inflation, but further down talks about technological improvements and thats where we come in!

Do you agree with the article? Personally by 2083 I think we (England) would have either joined the Euro or there will be a universal 'Credits' system across the world/developed countries.

A tunnel linking Europe to the USA? don't be so bloody stupid, far to many complications to prevent such a tunnel being made over that distance.

Didn't they predict in the 60s that by 1999 we would be living in outer space and travelling the far reaches of the galaxy; hence the TV show 'Space 1999?'
 
 

--------------------------------

People are so hostile to change and predictions of the future because in the past predictions were the opinion of an "expert" who just made stuff up.  No, we don't claim to be soothsayers but there are so many resources that show trends in technology, most of the things predicted on the timeline like artificial organs and bionic eyes, etc.  All that "fantastic" stuff is in its infancy today.  Give it 80 years and you will have sometime incredible.  It is a pessimistic thing to say by 2080 people will live practically immortally and with access to neural and physical augmentations, when we can do proof-of-concepts today.

 

The part of the future I look forward to the most is what I don't/can't see coming.  The applications of breakthroughs or these familiar trends in ways I would have never thought possible.

well, we are the experts according to the mail, so of course we know the truth. Thanks to all the groundbreaking research FutureTimeline labs has undertaken, we are the leading authorities on anything and everything future related.

 

...clearly they haven't seen the dark side of our forums...

The art of forgetting is inherent in human minds; the art of being forgotten  is the normal fate of knowing. We as futurists don't accept that. In the panels of the Universe, we alone will remain standing; remain unforgotten.

Some of the stuff on their is a little bit ridiculous lol. But it's still cool to be mentioned.

 

It's still amazing everytime i read this prediction though: By 2100 we will have computers that regularly can achieve all human thought throughout history in a matter of milliseconds. That just blows your mind.

 

I agree with SG-1. I can't wait to see the applications we never saw coming. But there are so many predictions and science fiction speculations out there that this could be hard, or just even more surprising. We're living in a time where scientific research is going all over the place, and there's theories for future applications just scattered everywhere.


What becomes of man when the things that man can create are greater than man itself?

Yes, it definitely is good to get a mention and that is quite a good article despite my deep hatred towards the Daily Mail.

Oh god, I just made the mistake of reading through the comments again. All the comments that say things like "Wow, the future will be amazing!" are getting about 30-40 "dislikes". For god's sake! I hate Conservatives so much!

The Daily Mail isn't the most liberal freethinking paper lol, most of the stories stir up some kind of hatred. The Science & Technology section however does publish some really interesting stories now and then though, its worth checking out.

Is it of any surprise that I'm listenin' to Radiohead's "The Daily Mail" right now?

The lyrics are pretty much my opinions for all this.

 

 

Fucking right-wing arseholes. I hate Daily Mail readers so much.

I'll cut them a little slack. After all, this is the most hated comment

 

 

Hopefully in the future Margaret Thatcher will be reincarnated reintroducing her policies based on Milton Friedman's 'monetarism' and the gap between rich and poor will once again start to narrow. It is socialist policies which create the class and wealth gap.
