The future, as foretold in the past
Basing on speculative fiction captions collected by Jane Hu (www.theawl.com/2012/08/atimeline-
of-future-events), the visualization analyses 62 foretold future events. For each event the visualization highlights typology (are they mainly social, scientific, technological, political?), year of the prediction, genre of the book and age of the author, while dividing them into positive, neutral or negative events. In the end, good news: in 802.701 the world will still exist and everything will be more or less ok.
