Nicholas Negroponte gave a talk in 1984 about his predictions for technology, and he was very accurate. Nicholas Negroponte founded the MIT media lab and is also behond the “one laptop per child” innitiative. I was 6 years old when he gave that talk, how old were you?
He predicted wikipedia, teleconferencing, touchscreens, and other things, and he did the whole presentation of course using videotape footage. It’s really important to be able to be visionary and look ahead. It’s even harder to do it and have others listen to you, and he does this well.
