The Future Forecast For 2009

4 Mar
Each year the World Future Society releases their annual “top forecasts for the future” list. It’s not as funny as a top ten list by David Letterman – but it’s thought provoking nonetheless.

Top 10 Forecasts for the future:

10. Access to electricity will reach 83% of the world by 2030
09. The middle east will become more secular
08. Urbanization will reach 60% by 2030
07. The race for genetic enhancement will parallel the space race
06. Professional knowledge will become obsolete almost as quickly as it’s acquired
05. The world’s legal systems will be networked
04. College majors and future careers will be more specialized
03. The cars’ days as king of the road may soon be over
02. Bioviolence will become a greater threat as technologies become more accessible
01. By 2030 everything you say and do might be recorded.
