I'm not the most romantic person in the world. I think fart jokes are appropriate on a first date and I'm dreadful at organising outings. But I think it's time I pulled my weight and treat my partner to a special night in. With the new season of Game Of Thrones premiering next week, I have decided to host a date night in Westeros, with all that implies. I'll be using Airtasker to help me out. (Insert 'Red Wedding' joke here...)
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

You've forgotten Valentine's Day again, haven't you? Time to make a decision: do you scramble for a meaningful gift in a desperate, last-minute frenzy? Do you hand over some tatty supermarket flowers and accept your fate with a rueful grin? Or do you launch into a clearly improvised diatribe against the commercialisation of romance and hope for the best? Alternatively, you could pay someone else a small fee to sort the whole thing out for you.
Airtasker, the crowdsourcing service we've featured before, has expanded its coverage to Brisbane and Melbourne and rolled out its iPhone app.
