Predicting the future? No thanks! Or...

I was just browsing around the internet a bit today and came across this post about a 14 year old boy imagining in 1901 what America would look like in 2001. This made me think: in 1901 the changes were not as quick as they are today. Take computers for example: at 42 I'm a bit of a veteran, using computers since 1976 or so, but even in my wildest dreams I could not have imagined the way we use computers today, or the impact they're having on our daily lives and our communication. And even our social life: sadly, for some people computers have turned into their only social life... So how about making predictions for 2101...
