The legacy future of the future

“Reality is always more complex than popular visions of the future would have us think.

“But, as I said, what I want to figure out are the legacy futures yet to come. Some candidates:

“The Singularity
“End of Scarcity
“Functional Immortality
Everyone on Facebook
“Robot wars

“All of these are presumably possible in some way, but strike me as very likely to come about in ways that differ considerably from present-day visions.”
New Legacies, by Jamais Cascio, Open the Future, June 18, 2012

Not only will I not be part of the future, as of July 4th I won’t be part of the legacy future on Facebook either. Yay!
