    Always good to make predictions for 10 years down the road, so no one remembers.

    He could be right. But given that he hasn't worked on a newspaper or a magazine since he was on the Harvard Crimson, I don't believe he's an expert on either industry and his opinion is no more qualified than that of the guy in the suit sitting next to you on the plane.

    Or maybe not 10 years
    So what he is really saying that it will change, but he doesn't know when.

    Robert Zemeckis said we'll have flying cars in 2015. So what?

    Don't forget about Mr. Fusion. You can use garbage to fuel your flux capacitor.

    2018? That's ridiculous. I say 2009.

    And don't forget those stacks of laserdiscs. Very futuristic.

    Of course he may be right.
    But, he has other problems. Like his company losing 25% of its worth in the last seven months.
