Paper Abstract

This year it seems to be very popular for pundits from many specialties to predict what will happen in the next 10 to 20 years. The year 2000 is such a nice round number, and so reasonably close, that it is fun to make some conjectures about what life on the third planet will be like then. Despite the fact that mankind is travelling on collision courses with several fundamental limiting forces in the world, like food, energy, military weapons, ..., and may not, in the end, actually reach that year with even a small majority of the people living today (Carter ),it will be assumed here that advancements will continue to be made based upon growth of our present technology. One of the key technologies in this period will be photoelectronics.
