I recently stumbled upon this “Future Timeline” on the geek web comic XKCD, which appears to highlight future events from 2012 to 2101 ascertained by serendipitous Google searches for relevant key words.
Click the image to see the full timeline, or follow this link. What I find particularly interesting is how contradictory many of these predictions are, and that may be the point. Still, it would be interesting to return to this from time to time and see if any of the predication actually do come to pass. I predict that none of them will (not in the exact year predicted, that is).
