Predicting the Future

Speaking of The New York Times, have you seen the current Interactive Feature: Predicting the Future of Computing on NYTimes.com?

Readers can post their predictions in categories of Computation, Artificial Intelligence, Transportation & Lifestyle, and Communication. You can then vote on the likeliness of the predictions coming true and change the predicted date if you see fit.

So, will there be a telepathic society by 2280? I think not. WiFi to the brain, Robot Wars, cash is outlawed, curing cancer, flying cars, A.I. government…yikes! What do you think? Do you have your own predictions?
