The idea of a global account for identity verification online sounds great in theory, but execution has proved difficult for obvious reasons. Google's done a decent job, as has Facebook and Twitter, all offering ID systems that can be used by developers for authorisation. Mozilla's Persona, however, hasn't seen as much uptake and as a result, the organisation has left it in the hands of the internet.

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.
