I didn’t change my mind … I’m still not the biggest fan of predictions, as they are rarely reflecting what’s really innovative and are mainly a gathering of things that are already going on for quite some time now. The people writing them are always vague enough to leave some space for a wide interpretation. If in December, those guys notice that they were close enough, they throw it back to you to prove how intelligent they are … if they’re not close at all, they pretend it never happened and they never wrote any of it (or come up with excuses). So basically nobody really cares but it keeps people (like me) busy!
