Not that I think God let us down, but this accurately predicts what the “web” will become and what Fakebook is.
“The memory card will become the principal artificial limb of a person, at once an identity card, a checkbook, a telephone, and a fax machine–in sum, nomadic man’s passport. It will be a kind of artificial self. To use it will only require plugging it into the global electronic networks of information and commerce, the oases of the new nomads.’
‘In the coming world order, there will be winners and there will be losers. The losers will outnumber the winners by an unimaginable factor. They will yearn for the chance to live decently, and they are likely to be denied that chance. They will encounter rampant prejudice and fear. They will find themselves penned in, asphyxiated by pollution, neglected through indifference. The horrors of the twentieth century will fade by comparison.”
