Karl Schroeder on CBC's The Hour

CBC Television's The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulous, which airs at 11 p.m. local time coast-to-coast in Canada, is doing a three-part series on the future to kick off the new year, asking what a baby born on New Year's Day, 2007, can expect the world to be like when they're 18, 30, 50, and 65. The three segments will air Tuesday, January 2; Wednesday, January 3; and Thursday, January 4.

Each segment features a different theme, and a different person making the predictions. One segment is on the future of transportation, and SF writer Robert J. Sawyer is interviewed; another is on the future of warfare and SF writer Karl Schroeder is interviewed; the third is on the future of humanity, and George Dvorsky of the Toronto Transhumanist Association is interviewed. But which segment will air on which night hasn't yet been determined.
