Intel Predicts the Future

Intel employed a futurist named Brian David Johnson whose was to determine what life would be like ten to fifteen years in the future. Johnson was the first futurist to work at Intel. Johnson said:

It takes around 10-15 years to design, build and deploy a new chip. This is why Intel needed someone who can look 10-15 years into the future and tell them what the world they are designing for will be like. The work that I do is very pragmatic. I am judged on my ability to tell people what is coming so they can do something about it. … Let’s design futures that are designed for real people, and the futures of real people.

Possible Preaching Angle:

Of course, there is only One who truly knows the end from the beginning. We need not fear the future, but trust our God who knows our future. It is right to plan, but wrong to seek to control our lives.
