Nicholas Negroponte Predicts the Future

Forget Nostradamus.

The great folks at TED have just posted clips from a speech given by Nicholas Negroponte, architect and computer scientist best known as the founder and Chairman Emeritus of MIT's Media Lab, at the first TED conference in 1984. I think it's safe to add the title "futurist" to Negroponte's resume. Not only are the bits of his speech really interesting and ground breaking in 1984, a number of them are now a reality.

There are plans to release the entire 2 hour talk but some of it needs to be restored. In the meantime, take a time out and check out Negroponte "wax prophetic on the converging fields of technology, entertainment and design".
