Quotes: Modern Stasis
We tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in two years and underestimate what we can accomplish in ten years.
— Unknown; sometimes attributed to Bill Gates

People assume that there exists a coherent well developed common sense view of the probable long term future. The real common sense when speaking of one's own future is to assume that in 40 years you will be 40 years older and it will still be 2009.
