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.


Yes, it's nearly time! This week, thanks to Microsoft and Windows Azure, we're hosting Lifehacker reader meetups in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. If you're one of the lucky people who signed up for each event, we're looking forward to meeting you (and the Gizmodo readers who have signed up as well). If it turns out that you now can't make it, please update your status on the Lifehacker Meetup page so that someone on the waitlist can come along.


We were overwhelmed by the response to our upcoming Lifehacker meetup events in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne (thanks to Microsoft and Windows Azure). Virtually every place was claimed within 24 hours and there's a very active waitlist-- so we'd like to remind everyone who signed up to make sure you do show up.


Lifehacker is already a friendly online community, and we figure it's time for it to become a friendly offline community as well. Thanks to Microsoft and Windows Azure, we're hosting trivia nights in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in May -- a great chance to catch up with fellow readers, show off your geek knowledge and maybe win a prize.
