In 2003 Gartner predicted that 40% of financial transactions, and 35% of government functions would be web services. The history of technology is full of these sorts of predictions as futurists and business people insist that in 5,10,20 years time "their product" will be ubiquitous. Audrey Watters and Kin Lane will explore the history of predicting the future of techology and discuss how to cut through the marketing hype and reveal predictions for what they are, helping us all see through smoke and mirrors used regularly to control and shape how we see the world.
