Nice pick Nostradamus. 😄

Why Make Predictions

I think making predictions can be useful in a few ways. It makes you think about what do you think will change? What do you think won’t change? How do you think the world will react? What direction do you think the world is headed in? It is also just fun to be able to say ‘I called that’.

Improvements

However I do think that I should start including an Epistemic status and Epistemic effort on my predictions like Devon Zuegel does for her blog posts.
