    An interesting article. I tend to agree with its optimistic mien. My only complaint is that it is now dated, being published in 1998. it would be nice to have an equivalent article from 2011.

    Agreed. It is pleasant to think that it was of interest. A more recent article by the same author can be viewed here:

    Something a bit similar about our perceptions of the world and how fast some things are improving.

    My thanks to both Prince and Lynx for their excellent references. I will keep them both, and certainly use them in the future.
