Predicting the future is always a questionable idea. Even the experts can get it wrong.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the world’s first television broadcast. RCA televised the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. Few people could afford TV sets at the time and many predicted that the new-fangled invention would never catch on.
The New York Times wrote, “The problem with television is that the people must sit and keep their eyes glued to a screen… the average American family hasn’t time for it.”
It strikes me that television indeed has become a success, despite the predictions from “experts.”
