Bad Predictions about the Future

Nov - 1 - 2007
Nicole C. Engard

I mentioned Dean Chickering’s opening to the EMA Conference earlier this week. In it he had a bunch of quotes about the future – including ones that people woudl probably regret saying if they were still alive (and probably do if they are). There is now a list of the Top 87 Bad Predictions about the Future that fits nicely in with this. Some of the quotes on this list were on Dean Chickering’s – like:

«The ordinary “horseless carriage” is at present a luxury for the wealthy; and although its price will probably fall in the future, it will never, of course, come into as common use as the bicycle.»
Literary Digest, 1899.

Give the list a look for a good chuckle.
