Expert Predictions!

A   L   O   H   A  !

That's ME!


“X-rays will prove to be a hoax.”

Lord Kelvin, 
British physicist 1899









“Printed books 
will never be the equivalent 
of handwritten codices,
 especially since printed books
 are often deficient in spelling
 and appearance.”

Johannes Trithemius,
 German abbot and scholar
 “In Praise of Scribes”
 1492









" ENIAC is equipped with 18,000 vacuum tubes

 and weighs 30 tons,

computers in the future

may have only 1,000 vacuum tubes

and weigh only 1.5 tons.”

Popular Mechanics
 1949

What do the experts know?
My laptop
weighs in at only
One Ton
and uses only 
Three Vacuum Tubes!


These days,
I seem to be learning
all the things
that I have been
wrong
about.

Once past the 
embarrassment
it's actually been
liberating.

What have 
Y O U
been wrong about?
