Today is Equal Pay Day in the US, which is so chosen because it marks, on average, how much longer a woman would have to work to make the same as a man did during the previous year. Women across the US are... well, not quite "celebrating", but marking the day with events and protests, and probably more than a few private grievances about their overpaid male colleagues and bosses. But while the pay gap pervades most occupations, it's often particularly pronounced at higher income levels -- which many jobs in tech are.

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.
