I'm rubbish at predicting future technology trends. In the 90s I claimed Java, JavaScript, and PHP were such bad languages, nobody would want to use them. Also, FTP and telnet would go away within a couple of years.

@liw I made a lot of bad predictions about robotics, and even wrote official reports for well known corporations on the subject. Almost none of it worked out the way I had thought.

I was overly optimistic. Like Asimov, I believed in a humane technology in the service of mankind. The timeline I'm now in is a much more dystopian one.
