In 1989 they had a small exhibit on the New York World’s Fair site in Queens called “Remembering the Future” where they celebrated the futuristic visions of 1939 and 1964.

The 1939 future mostly came true but, somehow, the 1964 future fell short of expectations and there are myriad reasons for this including political changes and social evolution. I have felt these changes in several fora but nowhere has the shortfall been so dramatic as in the forum of the digital computer.
