I have been thinking a lot lately, about all the possible futures I see before us and even though I used to arrogantly assume that things will go the
way I foresee, I have learned from experience that the world is much more complex place, which to a certain extent, defy's prediction by a single
My idea is this. Let's all get our heads together and come up with several "Scenario's" we see emerging in the next 10, 20, 50, and 100 year
timeframes. These basic scenarios should come with predictions as to how the Geopolitical landscape will look like, how society and culture is dealing
with the new landscape and how far Sci/tech has advanced in the various timeframes(as well as their significant impact on society in gerenal).
After that, lets get an informal vote going on to see what people reading this will think is the most likely(perhaps a blogger can setup the vote or
something like that), and then after all is said and done, let the floodgates of debate and discussion flow(hopefully).
It would be interesting(and entertaining) to see the emerging possiblities ATSers see coming up in the 21st Century.
I'll be bumping this post ever y other day to keep this going on for as long as possible.
Just one other thing, please refrain from arguing for or against certain scenarios, let the votes do the talking.
