Video: Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood is something I recall as a feeling rather than a specific set of memories. Wikipedia claims there was a whole cast of characters -- Mr McFeely, Pilot Ito, Officer Clemmons and a few dozen puppets -- but I don't remember them. With the passage of time, the show's details have collapsed into a singular sense of comfort and safety, the sensation of laying on the carpet in front of grandma's wood-panelled TV with the big, clicky knobs. Or, at least, that's what I think it looked like.

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.
