Trying to predict the future…

…is a discouraging and hazardous occupation.

Like a majority of the earth’s population, I am a big fan of the machinations of Mr. Arthur C. Clarke and his writings. He is considered one of the greatest science fiction writers of the 20th century and he also had a penchant for predicting the future with some high level of competency. While many of his predictions seem outlandish his thoughts on telecommunication were remarkably prescient.

Case in point, this Horizon video from 1964 where Mr. C. delivers some mad-Nostradamus-style-predictions on the world of today.
