When I was young I thought about the year 2000 and wondered what life would be like then.
Most people thought that our leisure time would increase and that there would be new inventions to do all the work.
This is not what happened.
As it turned out, although there were many new inventions, we were working longer hours than ever.
But at least we had some vision of what was to come.
The period after the millennium was not envisioned at all.
2000 was enough.
So now that the first decade of the new century is over we are sailing into uncharted waters.
