I was having a chat with Tegan the other day about a bit of a sore point - our future internet connection. Just before we moved into our new place, the glorious address checker on the NBN told us that, yes indeed, we would be getting "fibre to the premises". Beauty. But now that we've moved in, our suburb has been "upgraded" to the not-quite-so-fast technology of fibre to the curb (FTTC).

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.
