London-based writer and futurist, William James Fox, started Future Timeline back in 2008. It began as a relatively small and obscure website with a brief list of future predictions. Over the years, however, it was expanded to form a lengthy and detailed timeline – running from the present day, through the next century and beyond, all the way to the end of the universe itself.
With its quirky, thought-provoking and often alarming content, the site proved to be more popular than expected, gaining many fans and a number of contributors offering new predictions and ideas. A blog, social media and other features were added. Since then, Future Timeline has further grown and developed into a community of futurology enthusiasts from around the world.
