In spite of what I wrote earlier, I find this blog to be interesting. Futurism often seems to be comically misguided. Just visit Epcot Center and see for yourself. A little bit of optimism never hurts, though. Futurists do seem to have a dismal prediction record, but it is especially bad when the predictions are dismal. Things tend not to turn out as bad as many expect. Consider this. In the interest of fairness and balance, look at this.
