Lol - I love the Internet Wayback machine and other ways about looking back in time online to see just really how stupid we actually are.
It's a great way to stretch your mind 'forward' as well - when you start to think about how little we really do know and how we aren't really much more than ant's running around like crazy thinking we are making progress while acting all self important - it frees your mind up to think outside the square and move into a more paradigm shift about what is and isn't feasible.
I think my favourite quote is this
"What the Internet hucksters won't tell you is that the Internet is one big ocean of unedited data, without any pretense of completeness. Lacking editors, reviewers or critics, the Internet has become a wasteland of unfiltered data. You don't know what to ignore and what's worth reading."
Sounds like some famous last quotes of some editors and hard copy writers I know.
BTW - WTF do I know about predictions ...like Vodka 360 could really become the next biggest thing to drink and sold all over the world while cleaning and greening our lives :)
