WIRED reports on the 2000 installment of the Next Twenty Years discussion series. The SF participants included Paul Saffo (of the Institute for the Future), Stanley Williams (HP Labs), and Bill Gurley (Benchmark Capital), who all gave their views of general societal trends, and also reported their predictions for specific goodies to be on hand by 2020: home electric fuel cells that will enable you to go live off the grid anywhere; gigabyte email attachments; and "browsable desktop economies".
