Will Life Be Worth Living in 2000 AD? (July 22, 1961, Weekend Magazine)

"And this isn't science fiction. It's science fact - futuristic ideas, conceived by imaginative young men, whose crazy-sounding schemes have got the nod from the scientists." (Via Chapel Perilous.)

I like the implication that a device for recording phone messages might take up a room of its own. And how about that 24-hour work-week? To say absolutely nothing about the obligatory monorail.
