That's what came to mind (sorry if it was already discussed somewhere): there are in fact two types of content in FT. From 2000 to 2013 - a chronicle of already happened events. From 2014 to the end of Universe - more or less educated guesses about what's going to happen. By now, this page:

 

http://www.futuretim...entury/2013.htm

 

is already history, while this:

 

http://www.futuretim...entury/2014.htm

 

is still about futurology, but will obviously be rewritten in 2015 to add really happened events and remove all the failed predictions about "what should happen in this year".

 

So, why don't you keep these original pages somewhere? It would be interesting to compare them with reality. Even more interesting with every passing year...

Second that. I really want to see how the timeline compares with reality. I think it would be good to compare and use the comparison to estimate the accuracy of various predictions.

They're all archived on Wayback Machine. :)

 

Also, I have a "Deleted items" page saved to my hard drive. Maybe I will feature some of them, after the site has relaunched.

You should have statuses of past predictions. You can put beside them if they came true with the date or range of date the prediction was fulfilled. You than put beside the failed predictions something like it didn't happen. That would be pretty beat.
