Around this time every year, everyone starts to make predictions about 2019 and beyond. So I thought a list of predictions a friend recently forwarded to me was timely and pretty thought-provoking.

Among the predictions:

  • Software has disrupted and will continue to disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years
  • Real estate will change, because if you can work while you commute, people will move farther away to live in a more beautiful or affordable neighborhood
  • Electric cars will become mainstream about 2030. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity
  • Auto repair shops will go away
  • Gas stations will go away
  • In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans

I can see how some of these predictions may become true; others are a little harder to fathom. But it’s interesting, nevertheless, to consider how technology will continue to change and, in some cases, alter how we live.

One thing is for certain – 2019 will not be the same as 2018, and 2020 will continue to introduce new innovations to life as we know it. So we may as well enjoy the ride!
