GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 26th February at noon SLT: Is this the Best Time to be Alive?


Would you rather live 1000 years in the past, or 100 years in the past, or maybe just 20 years in the past?  In the past ordinary people could understand technology and see where we were heading and perhaps it was a more hopeful, and in many ways a more beautiful, world then. 

Or would you like to live in the future?  In the year 3000, or 2100 or maybe the year 2042?  Will the future be better or worse than the present?  Is there any way to tell?  Can you see signs of what is to come?  Or is the future completely unpredictable, determined by unknown ‘black swans’?

If we survive the next 20 years what world will we see?  Will we wish we were back in 2022?  Will we have to start all over again?  Or will everything be better?

Join us in GeekSpeak at noon SLT on Saturday to see the future.  Bring your crystal ball!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
