A big pile of 2012 predictions

Here’s a nice sampler of 2012 predictions.

It’s interesting to think about these off-the-cuff-, method-free futures as a genre.  First, they appeal to authority.  A leading tech journal opines on tech, as does a major innovator.  The Economist speaks to, well, everything.

Second, they are small-picture items.  A gadget, a standard, a new practice: that’s about it.  Very micro.
