For many years I devoted about 10% of my time (Friday afternoons) to trying to understand what would happen in the future of computing, both as a scientific tool and as shaper of the social world of work and play. In forming your plan for your future you need to distinguish three different questions:
- What is possible?
- What is likely to happen?
- What is desirable to have happen?
