My Favourite Prediction

in our industry is one i have been quoting for years but had not actually double checked its veracity till just now "I see little commercial potential for the Internet for at least ten years.” by a certain William Gates III in 1994.
It makes me feel better when i state things like i think Twitter is a load of old tosh and such like.
Ultimately a sign of how actually important our predictions are - was his response when called on this after Microsoft started putting $$$millions in to the web was "I was wrong, so what..."
