I haven't seen La La Land yet, but I want to. Trouble is, the word of mouth, glowing reviews and endless awards have placed it on a pedestal so high I feel the actual experience won't be able to reach it. The hype is strong with this one. But maybe there's a way to go in with a clean slate. Maybe there's a way to slay the hype monster before it can strike.

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.
