"What Science Fiction got Wrong...and Right (and how you choose the future)"

In the 1950s and '60s, science reigned supreme. People believed that science would solve all of the world's problems. Engineers were hailed as saints of progress.

But the same era also saw predictions of the world's end: by nuclear war, overpopulation, global unemployment, environmental catastrophe.

How accurate were the futurists and science fictioneers of the last century? What futures didn't materialize, and what visions may yet come true? And do we, today, have the ability to change tomorrow?

Interesting but too short for me.
Coulda talked all night, lol.
Still, the presentation was interesting about history which I lived.
The feedback part was good, lots of great questions and got me thinking about stuff I haven't thought of in awhile.
All in all, not bad.
Thanx...
