Life in the Year 2014
I ran across this delicious article this morning by science fiction writer Robert J. Sawer on Backbonemag.com.

In it, he envisions what the life will be like in the year 2014, a mere 10 years from now. And even though he wrote it in July of this year, he shows that predections of the future can never be too near for the fallacies to creep in.

His rosey picture of technology is every bit in the vein of those people who, in the 1920s, were trying to envision the glorious 1980s where technologies of the future have cured all men's ills and made the world a better place. Since Sawyer is only looking ahead 10 years, there are no cities of ultra-high-rises or sky-cars, but there are things that are just as wonderful, like relics from the 1950s and '60s future movements such as the robotic kitchen.

Unfortunately I don't have the time to dig into all of the aspects of the story worth noting (and learning from) just now, but I will do so as soon as I can, don't you worry (and I know you were worried)!

Meanwhile, check out the article below.
