20 visions of life in the year 2020
2020 is only six years away and yet it’s a nice round number to use as a milestone from which to judge the progress of technology in the 21st Century.
Shift 2020 is a new book that has compiled predictions about life in 2020 from a wide range of thinkers and doers in the technology sector. After a successful crowdfunding campaign, the book is available digitally in a Kindle edition and iBooks-compatible version, and in paperback and hardcover versions if you’re an aficionado of physical media.
Here, we’ve picked out twenty excerpts from the book that we thought were worth sharing. We don’t necessarily agree with them all but they certainly capture the current spirit of optimism amongst technologists that arguably hasn’t been matched since Mars colonies and flying cars seemed close to reality in the 1950s and 60s.
