Two very different views of the future

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:26pm
The upcoming BBC series "Visions of the Future" has evoked two very different responses: One site, in the Women's Section of the UK TimesOnline hails " Welcome to the New Body Shop " and presents a fairly positive outlook on what science and technology will be able to contribute to the future. The other article, in the UK Telegraph, " And we will have the power of gods " presents a cautionary-beware-of-hubris outlook.

Is this merely a difference in reporting styles between the newspapers or representative of how different people look at the same news and see different things?

[Addendum, November 15, 2007: FutureNerd Steve Witham has some interesting things to say about ways of thinking about the future. Check his blog(s) at
