I think I can do this! I read "The Age of Spiritual Machines" when it came out, and remember marking in the margins about whether or not I agreed with each. I was in high school at the time, and think I left the book at home when I left for college. I will see if it is still there.

Though I also agree with the comment from handofixue that making the predictions is much harder than judging them.

Very cool! I'd love to see that. What year did you do this?
