An short essay detailing the various ways that future prediction has been performed, from magic systems such as i-ching and horoscopes to the more modern uses of big data and trend analysis. Stephen Cobb is careful to point out the problems any method of future prediction inherently has. I enjoy his insights into a fascinating subject matter.
