As the end of the decade is a week away.
I was wondering what would the tech predictions for the next decade would be?
It can be anything *as long as* it's tech related (e.g. computer languages, frameworks/libs, tools, processes, techniques, ...).

    This decade will end on 2020-12-31, not 2019-12-31 because there was no year 0.

    Prediction: Facebook will still exist, but nobody will be happy about that.

    More dump laws that makes it harder for secure software and another year of dumb ideas that will kill the joy of knowing how IT works.

    @Fast-Nop except when astronomical year numbering is used.

    @electrineer Which nobody uses (except astronoms of course) because then the years before 1 are thrown off in relation to what history books have.

    @Fast-Nop actually I did a bit of reading and it seems like either is correct. Strictly speaking, a decade means a timespan of ten years.

    @Fast-Nop also note that year 1 didn't exist either until it was named that afterwards.

    @Fast-Nop there's a difference between the sixties and the 197th decade.

    @electrineer Well with our calendar, we don't use astronomical time (it's people not knowing the calendar), the millennium didn't start on 2000-01-01, and of course you can also end "the decade" on 2023-04-23 15:49. Doesn't change the fact that this calendaric decade won't end in one week.

    @Fast-Nop Don't know what timezone you are when you read my post but when I made it was correct.

    @Berkmann18 Has nothing to do with timezones.

    @Fast-Nop I'll take a guess and assume you don't know that "decade" means 10 years and that it's relative to dates which are affected by timezones (Not everyone has 01/01/2020 at the same time).
    And also that you clearly missed the *point* of the post.
    Merry Christmas.

    @Berkmann18 *sigh* It's that you don't realise that the first decade in Western year counting went from year 1 to year 10 because there was no year 0. That continues all until this decade which is from 2011-01-01 to 2020-12-31 and not from 2010-01-01 to 2019-12-31.

    Also, how would a timezone difference account for a full year of difference?! That would be maximum 24 hours.

    The point of that post? Well it doesn't have one because this decade ends ONE FULL YEAR LATER than you think it does.

    @Fast-Nop Okay, so you haven't read past the first paragraph. Nice!
