A view of 2008... from 1968

This is an interesting article from "Modern Mechanix" magazine from 1968.

I find it very interesting that missing one small piece of information skews the entire article. For example, he talks about "Not every family has its private computer. Many families reserve time on a city or regional computer to serve their needs." and "TV-telephone shopping is common." He did not see a computer in every home that is connected to every other computer via the internet.

But apart from that, it is a good article, and many of the concepts are a reality today, although not in the same form as he anticipated.
