Predicting the Future? Too easy!

So I set my book in 2015 and rammed in loads of innovative, amazing, incredible stuff in my own modest way. As of today – here’s how the world has caught up.

A social network grows to be bigger than most countries – and a lot more powerful

A social network is first to have driverless cars and eyeglasses that access the information highway

The Pope runs away to Castle Gandolfini

The Catholic Church takes heavy incoming thank’s to freedom of information on the web

Youngsters live ‘in a virtual world’ 

The internet is used to bring the world to its knees (that was yesterday btw in case you haven’t noticed your computer running at half speed)

Virtual sex becomes more popular than the real thing

The super-rich and the men who run the world get outed

There’s an assassination attempt at the White House – hold on, wait, that’s next month. 

I get ahead of myself some times.

Still to come

AdultOption – young people adopting older couples

The Upira – abusers of women being outed on the web using collation technology

People working for food and board to do something they love

UltraPodding – people living in complete virtuality

Bots on the web controlling supply chains and running projects

Protocol bots keeping politicians honest (OK, that’s never going to happen)

Necropolis – a virtual place where people go where they die and live through their avatars and having NecroJobs – avatars of dead people continue working in IT related jobs

Image

The Glass Wall – a user interface between the dead and the living

Intelligent firewalls – computer protection that thinks for itself

Image

Synth DNA – its what’s uploaded to your avatar when you die

Skynsuits – body suits for travelling in cyber space or having cyber-sex, or both at the same time

iKidUnot – children tracked and monitored via the web using implants

Mobile phones that recognise their owners and only work for them

Phones that die when their user dies

The wiring of the web used as a super-computer

There’s hundreds more but its getting late, so…

Last but not least – Social Websites becoming Nations (as allowed by UN Protocol at the moment. ‘A nation is defined as an imagined community’)

iNation – why don’t you drop in for a chat?

iNation Promotional Video

Before opening this short video (67 seconds of mayhem)…

Remove all inflammable clothing

Remove glass eyes, false teeth, etc

Hold on to something solid.

Best with earbuds in and the volume cranked up

Thanks for watching!
