"Gattaca" is just around the corner. identity and DNA purity will eventually become a reality and those who fail to "evolve" will become a new sub-class. Just look around, it is already starting to happen. Genone sequencing, cloning, Gene alteration, Tissue creation...DNA correction just around the corner. Just a matter of time before your DNA is part of your resume, or insurance check, or entry into a program or facility. It will start in countries with loose laws, then become a standard. Then it will be a black market for alterations. I give it 10 years.

Already in action, these areas are hotly contested. It is only a matter of time before tensions increase as resources dwindle. Water, ore, oil, etc. 15-25 yrs. Possible world at war, but not necessarily a world war.

With today's highly traveled and integrated/open societies, there will be some major outbreak of a variant virus or strain tha will be historically signfiicant. Just look at the Recent FLU strains and how fast they travel. These are strains we have vaccines for. Just a matter of time before a variant pops up that we don't have a cure. A plague of our time.
That in 2012 the earth will disappear... ...for coincidence the most powerful solar storm is expected for that date, that should reset and stop the energy on earth... :-(
Sometime in the next 5 years a new more efficient method of factoring large numbers will appear, throwing the internet security world into a tissy for a short while at least.
Isn't there a law or something that requires flying cars to be in any prediction of the future?
Maybe we will live for 100, 150 years... ...or simply the regeneration will be cyclic...
