    Help finding a futurism quote

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by nzric, Jan 6, 2011.


    I like the speculative fiction genre and I came across a good quote, but I can't quite remember it.

    It's about the field of 'futurism' and goes something like...

    "the future will be 95 percent how things already are [?], and about 5 percent utter weirdness"

    E.g. we're not now flying around in personal jetpacks with household robots, like someone may have predicted 60 years ago, but try explaining cloud computing to someone in the 1950's.

    Could anyone help me find the source for this quote?
