2010: Living in the future

In the far-off year 2010, we'll all do our work and schooling and library-book-reading on ingenious video screens that can connect to each other from anywhere around the globe.

Of course, in author Geoffrey Hoyle's 1972 vision, those screens are telephone-based, the size of a large dishwasher—and we use them while wearing practical and futuristic jumpsuits.

Daniel Sinker loved 2010: Living in the Future as a child, and now shares the book—in all its not-quite-on-the-money glory—with the Internets. Wait until you get to the part about "a series of tubes".
