In the last decades, various attempts have been made to predict the future development of technology. Not uncommonly, these projections merged with the expectance of a moment in time where technology transcends the human mind. The range of hopes and dreams that find place in these techno-utopian visions is broad; and the graphs that circulate within these milieus give the predictions an air of rational science.
