I’d like to add another important prediction by JMC, found in Dennett’s “Darwin’s Dangerous Idea”, section 12.2 (p. 350f in my paperback): He noted that only few poets can make a living selling poetry books. As a solution he recommended to put the texts onto an “international network” (yet to be invented back then) where people can read them for a penny to be transferred to the poet’s account (using a method to be invented as well).
I must be getting old, virtually all the people I admire are either dead or dying.
