Looking Back to the Future – Where Did It All Go Wrong..?

So I first bookmarked a variant of EPIC 2015 four and a half years ago…

Where does it go wrong..?

Remind me – what year are we in now?

PS I’m thinking…. it’s time for a remake…

One thought on “Looking Back to the Future – Where Did It All Go Wrong..?”

  1. “Newsbotster”? “GoogleZon”? “…however its content stream remains open to googlezon” – so it seems like this is the first place the storyline really goes astray, the lawsuits already happened a long time ago, and it doesn’t anticipate Murdoch and MS Bing pushing back at Google. Plus it doesn’t anticipate Wolfram Alpha as an entrant (though it does accurately predict *someone* was going to take that step.) Otherwise, still seems eerily prescient, even the timeline’s not bad.
