Ah, hindsight... Listuniverse's Top 30 Failed Technology Predictions are quite funny now, but many of them were made by the leading men of the day. It just goes to show that predicting the future is more difficult than we might think. When I was a kid, we heard predictions about flying cars and space stations on Mars, but I don't think anyone ever imagined a worldwide network of computers that would bring people together, help old friends reconnect, and enable an average person like me to post her words for the world to see. I still want my flying car, but I'm pretty impressed with the miracles that have taken place in the last 30 years.
