Extinction Timeline: what will disappear from our lives before 2050

Ross Dawson Points The Way to the Extinction Timeline created jointly by What’s Next and Future Exploration Network. “When people talk about the future, they usually point to all the new things that will come to pass. However the evolution of human society is as much about old things disappearing as new things appearing. This means it is particularly useful to consider everything in our lives that is likely to become extinct.”

The timeline lists libraries as being gone around the same time as Post Offices, just before Blogging and Desk Top Computers, and just after Computer Mice and “Getting Lost.”
