Do you want to bet? Future predictions on XML


I love reading through these long bets especially
"At least one human alive in the year 2000 will
still be alive in 2150
." which I could blog about for hours and Winer's "In
a Google search of five keywords or phrases representing the top five news stories
of 2007, weblogs will rank higher than the New York Times' Web site.
"

Now for my prediction. "XML and ASCII will still be used in computing architectures
in 80 years time
" Who wants to take me on for a $20 bet?

    A mere 80, Mark? How about 800?

    I predict that the bit will be obsolete in 30 years 🙂
